IT firm to add 40 jobs by 2016 in $3.3M expansion in Hauppauge

Flexible Business Systems Inc. plans to double its space with the purchase of 380 Oser Ave. in Hauppauge.

The $3.3-million project will allow the information technology business to expand its data center and classrooms, said vice president and co-owner Joseph D. Saggio. The company now occupies 10,000 square feet at 85 Corporate Dr., also in Hauppauge.

“We have no room for expansion,” he said. “We need the additional space.”

Flexible Business is benefiting from interest by hospitals and doctors’ offices in electronic health records, which are required under the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare.

Saggio said the company’s payroll has increased from 47 people to 76 in the past year; 81 are now employed there. He expects to hire 40 more by 2016.

Last week, the Suffolk County Industrial Development Agency agreed to provide Flexible Business with $214,083 in tax breaks, including a $145,739 reduction in property taxes over 10 years.
