News Release

FORT WAYNE, Ind. - ENS Group, a leading technology consulting firm in Fort Wayne, has outgrown its Engle Road location and moved to 8181 West Jefferson Boulevard in Olde Canal Office Park. ENS renovated a 10,500 sf speculative building space into a state-of-the-art technology center and office space. The companys sustained growth has afforded them the opportunity to create highly skilled jobs in the technology industry. ENS Group is seeking to fill six new positions to add to its current workforce of 47 information technology specialists and market development managers.

"ENS Group's business expansion helps the Northeast Indiana region continue to develop the emerging high-tech cluster in our community," said Ashley Steenman, Vice President of Business Development for The Alliance. "This not only serves local businesses here by providing a unique set of services, but it also works to boost our economic growth by attracting other high-tech companies to our community."

Since 1995, ENS has successfully helped its clients improve profitability by adopting and leveraging information technology. The company's training and testing programs are nationally recognized and the group focuses energies on how technology can complement a business's goals. In 2012, ENS Group was named an Indiana Company to Watch and made the Inc 5000 list of "Fastest Growing Companies." Recently, ENS Group was designated a Cisco Silver Partner.

"ENS Group is now the largest Cisco Partner north of Indianapolis," said Tim Savage, Principal of ENS.

"With the addition of three Cisco Certified Internetworking Engineers (CCIE) to our technical roster, we offer all the capabilities of a technology provider from larger metropolitan areas."

The CCIE certification is widely known as the most difficult of all information technology certifications to obtain. There are estimated to be less than 25,000 active CCIEs worldwide. ENS Group now maintains a CCIE in three main practice areas: Security, Route & Switch, and Unified Communications.

"ENS Group is excited to join an elite group of approximately 50 Cisco Silver Partners and we look forward to being able to deliver advanced solutions in the local communities we serve," said Savage. "Prior to our investment, local companies had to seek high level technical expertise from outside the local area. We now offer local companies the opportunity to keep their dollars local and obtain the same level of expertise as companies from Indianapolis and Chicago."

ENS Group has posted open positions and job descriptions on the State of Indiana's job matching website www.indianacareerconnect.com. The company will work with WorkOne Northeast to identify qualified applicants.
