Superion, which provides and designs software for public sector agencies and nonprofit groups, is launching a $3.46 million expansion in High Point, North Carolina, where it will create 80 new jobs over the next three years.
Superion, formerly known as SunGard Public Sector, currently has 155 full-time employees in High Point. The new jobs will include product support, professional services and software development. The expansion will require office upgrades and new IT equipment. Salaries for the new positions will average $57,829, above the $45,602 average salary in Guilford County.
“We are thrilled to be expanding our operations in High Point and building out a national Center of Excellence for our public safety software business,” said Simon Angove, chief executive officer of Superion. “The business-friendly environment and access to a wealth of technical talent means we’ve enjoyed a lot of success in Guilford County.”
Superion, headquartered in Lake Mary, Florida, provides comprehensive software to address the specialized and complex needs of municipal and county governments and agencies in the areas of public safety, justice and public administration. Customers also include state and federal governments, as well as nonprofit agencies.
“Our state’s software and IT industry is strong and getting stronger,” said Gov. Roy Cooper. “Jobs like Superion’s are in demand, and we’re committed to increasing the pool of talented tech professionals in North Carolina ready to fill that need.”

“Superion has found success already in High Point,” said state Commerce Secretary Anthony M. Copeland, “and I know they are making the right decision to expand here. The customized training our community colleges will conduct, as well as our business climate and the health of our IT industry, will support Superion’s continued success.”
A state performance-based grant of $160,000 from the One North Carolina Fund will help support Superion’s expansion in Guilford County. The One N.C. Fund provides financial assistance to local governments to help attract economic investment and create jobs. Companies receive no money upfront and must meet job creation and capital investment targets to qualify for payment. All One NC grants require a matching grant from local governments.
Regional Industry Manager Tracy Dellinger of the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina supported this project, in partnership with the state Department of Commerce, state General Assembly, the North Carolina Community College System, the city of High Point, the High Point Economic Development Corporation, the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce and the Guilford County Economic Development Alliance.
