BONITA SPRINGS — New Jersey-based technology firm eMaint Enterprises is expanding in Southwest Florida and plans to hire 150 people in Bonita Springs.

eMaint provides computerized maintenance management software to more than 4,000 companies and 35,000 users in 55 countries. The company provides the tools for companies such as manufacturers, fleet operators, health care facilities and municipalities to manage their maintenance operations to control costs and increase overall productivity.

The company established an office in Estero in April 2012. The expansion to nearby Bonita Springs will allow eMaint to expand its training center and includes new positions in professional services, customer support, training and sales. The new office is at 3181 North Bay Village Court in Bonita Springs.

“The move is a result of significant company growth,” says Brian Samelson, founder and CEO of eMaint, in a statement. “We are excited with our Florida expansion.”

Florida Gov. Rick Scott announced the company's expansion. “I am proud to announce today that eMaint has chosen Florida over New Jersey as the best place to expand and create 150 new jobs,” Scott says in a statement. “With no income tax, more than 55 tax cuts since 2010, and a growing economy, it is clear that Florida is the best state for businesses like eMaint to grow.”

Companies are moving out of high-tax states such as New Jersey and moving to Florida, officials add. “eMaint is another company that has rejected high taxes and burdensome regulations in another state, choosing instead to expand in Florida,” says Cissy Proctor, executive director of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, in the statement. “The Sunshine State has the best climate to open, expand or relocate a business, which encourages private-sector investment and the creation of new jobs.”
