Location in Orange County’s City of Maitland will add $28 million capital investment
Maitland, Fla. – Today, Florida Governor Rick Scott announced that ADP, LLC (NASDAQ: ADP) will locate a new office in Orange County in the City of Maitland. The new office opening will create up to 1,600 new jobs within the next five years and create a capital investment of $28 million.
ADP is a comprehensive global provider of cloud-based Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions that unite HR, payroll, talent, time, tax, and benefits administration. The company is a leader in business outsourcing services, analytics, and compliance expertise. ADP serves more than 610,000 clients of all types and sizes around the world.
Governor Scott said, “I am proud to announce today that ADP will be expanding in Orange County and creating 1,600 new jobs for families. While this global company could have chosen to invest in any other location, they ultimately decided that Florida was the best place for their business to grow. I look forward to ADP’s continued success in our state.”
“Powerful technology combined with superior service is why ADP is a Human Capital Management leader,” said Debbie Dyson, corporate vice president, Client Experience and Continuous Improvement at ADP. “We are strategically placing jobs in the areas of client support and implementation and are happy to be doing this in the Orlando area.”
“We are thrilled to hear that ADP is opening a new office in Orange County,” said Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs. “With our world class business environment, access to global markets, and thriving business services cluster, Orange County is a perfect fit. ADP’s decision to open a new office within our community speaks to the strength of our business assets and economic climate.”
“Because of ADP’s high profile, the number of new jobs being created in Maitland and the value-added impact on the City and region, the Maitland City Council supports this project and is pleased to welcome ADP to the City of Maitland,” said City of Maitland Mayor Dale McDonald.
“It is certainly a great day when we can welcome a company like ADP and celebrate all of the benefits that come with their growth – new jobs, better opportunities, and positive economic development for our community,” said David Fuller, chair of the Orlando Economic Development Commission (EDC).
“The addition of ADP to the region expands the list of industry leaders who have chosen Orlando because they have discovered what we all know – this is an incredible place for a business to thrive and prosper because of our skilled and abundant workforce,” said Holly Wiedman, Orlando EDC executive vice president. “I am proud of the hard work done by the EDC and all of our partners as we worked together to successfully recruit ADP to our great region.”
The EDC worked with the company to provide a detailed business cost analysis, real estate information, employer interviews and vital connections to partners including local executives, staffing companies, universities and careersource agencies.
The project originated with direct contact from a site location consultant in September 2015 who was working with a Fortune 250 company looking to create 1,600 jobs in business outsourcing. The consultant, who specializes in talent, was impressed with both the quantity and quality of Orlando’s workforce.
The EDC and community partners hosted the consultant and company executives on more than five trips to the market where they met with talent providers and local executives who could talk about doing business in the Orlando region.
Ultimately, ADP was impressed with the Orlando region’s strong demographics, workforce and talent pipeline. The company focuses on hiring recent graduates with 4-year degrees and the University of Central Florida’s annual graduating class of more than 24,000 among its 63,000 students overall was certainly a draw. Within 100 miles of Orlando, there are more than 500,000 higher education students enrolled, allowing companies to recruit from a broad base of top tier colleges and universities.
Partners in the expansion include Enterprise Florida, Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Orlando EDC, Orange County, the City of Maitland, CareerSource Central Florida and Duke Energy.

Their decision to bring this highly competitive project and new location to our state is a reflection of Florida’s strong workforce and pro-business climate. Projects like this will help us bring even more jobs to the state and we thank ADP for their ongoing commitment to Florida.”
Cissy Proctor, Executive Director of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, said, “Central Florida’s rapidly growing technology sector is an attractive asset for companies like ADP. The company’s new location will provide more than 1,600 new jobs for Floridians and help encourage additional investment in the community and across the state.”
“ADP is a game-changer for Central Florida. While our EDC team continues to attract high-impact companies to our community, this project elevates us to another level,” said Pamela Nabors, CareerSource Central Florida President and CEO. “It’s always a win when a company commits to move – or expand – to our community and actively engages education partners, prioritizes the hiring of veterans, and becomes a premier employer in the region. CareerSource Central Florida is proud to partner in this endeavor and assist them in finding and hiring local talent. This is a great day for Central Florida.”
“ADP’s exciting announcement will mean new job opportunities this year and well into the future for the communities we serve,” said Alex Glenn, Duke Energy Florida state president. “This win is a perfect example of the importance economic development plays in everyone’s life and the success that comes from community partners working together to attract new businesses to the region. Duke Energy is proud to have been part of the team to attract ADP to Florida.”
