Provalus, the domestic rural outsourcing brand of Atlanta-based Optomi Professional Services, is holding a ribbon-cutting today for its flagship technology innovation center in Brewton.

Provalus, a tech-staffing firm that provides an alternative to overseas outsourcing of business functions, invested $6.5 million into the 55,000-square-foot facility. The Highland Group served as general contractors.

Today’s ribbon-cutting is scheduled to feature Gov. Kay Ivey, as well as a number of other state and company officials.

“Our main mission is to provide values to the U.S. by bringing jobs back … especially to rural areas,” said Laura Chevalier, president of Provalus. “Throughout this last year, particularly, companies have recognized the need to have a partner that focuses on quality and collaborative support, while also providing a highly dependable solution. … We offer an unmatched solution here in-country.”
