PeopleTec Celebrates Growth, New Headquarters in Cummings Research Park

Huntsville, AL – PeopleTec, one of Cummings Research Park’s fastest-growing private companies, celebrated that growth over five years in business as it held its open House and ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday.

More than 100 people, including U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Huntsville, and U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt, R-Haleyville, joined company officials, employees, customers, and other guests for the festivities at the company’s headquarters at 4901 Corporate Drive NW in Research Park.

Founded in 2005 by Doug Scalf and Terry Jennings, PeopleTec provides engineering, information technology, modeling and simulation, and program support services to Federal and commercial customers. Its federal customer base includes MDA, AMCOM, SMDC, PEO Missiles and Space, PEO Aviation, AMRDEC, the National Guard and the FBI.

The company now has more than 110 employees and was recognized this year as one of the Best Places to Work in Huntsville/Madison County by the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce and the North Alabama Society for Human Resource Management.

Speaking for his company, Scalf thanked Brooks and Aderholt for their support of national defense and their support of research and development for Department of Defense and NASA programs.

Scalf said Huntsville was the ideal place to start a business like PeopleTec.

“It possesses a unique business partnership consisting of three pillars: government customers, an engaged community, and unparalleled congressional support,” he said.

Cummings Research, he said, “gives Huntsville national recognition and is a very appealing part of why companies and people want to come to and work in Huntsville.”

Brooks offered congratulations and praised Huntsville’s high level of technical expertise. Aderholt, whose district lies south of Huntsville but is home to many Research Park employees, said, “Huntsville means so much to the economic development of my district, and PeopleTec exemplifies what Huntsville is all about.”
