This past Friday, Governor Susana Martinez along city officials and Garrett Hill, chief executive officer of X2nSat, gathered at Plaza de Las Cruces to announce X2nSat will expand its operations into New Mexico, bringing as many as 45 new jobs to Las Cruces! And these aren’t just any jobs, these are high-tech jobs with annual salaries of as much as $100,000.

Hill said there could be even more job creation over the years as their operation in the City of the Crosses grows. X2nSat is a small satellite communications company that provides wireless network, satellite and other remote communications. Its headquarters are in Petaluma, California. X2nSat will open its Las Cruces facility on 12 acres at the West Mesa Industrial Park.
