Encryption Security Solutions is creating jobs as a means to an end of retaining and creating even more employment here.
Lake Orion-based firm has added four positions in the last year,
including two recent hires, bringing its staff to seven people. It
plans to hire two more within the next 60-90 days to help deal with its
increasing work load.
The 4-year-old firm is helping manufacturers learn the ropes of becoming a government contractor by complying with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations.
That allows them to begin taking orders for defense and homeland
security sectors. The state is subsidizing two thirds ($4,600) of the
cost of this training to help keep more manufacturing jobs here.
The company specializes in digital security and has a subsidiary called Pure Entropy Technologies that deals with many government contracts.
