Sunrise, FL August 11, 2011 – Eyecast (formerly OCP), a global leader in cloud-based video surveillance service for residential and business customers, announced that it will be adding 100 employees at its facility in Sunrise, Florida.
John DuBois, CEO of Eyecast said, “The City of Sunrise is a perfect place to grow our business due to the number of other cloud/mobile communications companies in the region and the experienced workforce that exists in Broward County and South Florida. We looked at other locations outside the state of Florida but the assistance provided by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance, the city of Sunrise, Broward County and the state of Florida helped us decide that Sunrise was the right choice for our expansion.” The company plans to make a $25.5 million capital investment in Sunrise.
Florida Governor Rick Scott said, “We salute Eyecast for choosing Florida as the place to expand their operations. This announcement demonstrates that our efforts to reduce the burden of taxes and regulation on businesses are working, and are making Florida the best location in the world for businesses to locate and grow.”
Alliance President and CEO Bob Swindell said, “We are very happy that Eyecast has chosen Sunrise as its expansion location. The company is an important part of our cloud technology/mobile communications cluster that continues to grow in Broward County with companies like Motorola, Research in Motion, Citrix and Foxconn.”
City of Sunrise Mayor Michael J. Ryan added, “We are delighted that leading companies in the field of cloud computing and mobile communications are choosing Sunrise to locate and grow. The City of Sunrise was pleased to help the company through their location process and we look forward to the company growing in Sunrise in the future.”

With very high paying wages, these new jobs are great news for the residents of Broward County. Congratulations to Eyecast on this expansion. On behalf of the Broward Commission, I wish you the very best of luck.”
