Sen. Max Baucus launched his Montana Jobs Economic Engine initiative last week “aimed at highlighting the work of companies driving the state’s economy forward,” according to a release, and the first company recognized is Nomad Global Communication Systems of Columbia Falls.

In a release, Baucus said he has chosen the Flathead tech company for its ability to provide jobs in one of the highest unemployment regions in the state. Nomad builds mobile command centers that are equipped with cutting-edge technology and used in emergency response situations. Last year the company scored a major contract with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Nomad has increased its workforce by over 300 percent to nearly 80 employees in the last year and a half, according to the release.

“Nomad is providing a world class product while providing jobs in an area of the state that’s been dealt a harsh blow as a result of the recession,” Baucus said.

I’ve written about Nomad a couple of times in the past and the company just keeps managing to pull off something newsworthy on a regular basis. With so much doom and gloom surrounding the economy in recent years, it’s nice to see innovative businesses like Nomad not only surviving, but thriving.

Will Schmautz, the company’s CEO and president, thanked Baucus for his support.

“It’s heartening to know Senator Baucus recognizes the risks we’re taking and the hard work we’re doing to create nationally competitive jobs in the community in which I grew up and love,” Schmautz said.

“Nomad is strategically moving forward, growing our company and doing everything we can to put Montanans to work in the Flathead, while providing industry leading, innovative communication solutions for the nation’s emergency responders, mobile telemedicine providers and remote business applications.”
