BREVARD - Nuance Communications can add its name to the list of many new businesses relocating or expanding in Brevard County within the next year.

The Economic Development Commission of Florida's Space Coast announced on Friday, Nov. 2 that the Burlington, Mass., technology company, which specializes in voice and language solutions, will expand its operations in Melbourne by 2013.

The voice and language technologies developed by the company are used by Apple Inc. for the iPhone and iPad.

Nuance said in a press release that the company plans to create 115 new jobs locally. The company will also make additional capital investments in its facility, located at 3984 Pepsi Cola Drive in Melbourne, to support the expansion.

Lynda Weatherman, president and CEO of the Economic Development Commission of Florida's Space Coast, said in an email that the project has been in development since May 2011.

The Economic Development Commission of Florida's Space Coast said it worked with the company to demonstrate the competitive advantages of a Brevard County expansion and helped identify ways the company could reduce costs. At full employment, the company's total projected economic impact will rise by 66 percent to nearly $24.4 million.

"Nuance's expansion will continue to diversify and advance our tradition of a high-tech environment on the Space Coast," she said in an email. "We look forward to the company's continued growth and success on the Space Coast."

Pat Cinalli, vice president at Nuance's Brevard facility, said in a press release that he is also looking forward to the expansion.

"Melbourne provides Nuance with a strong foundation to expand our business," he said. "We are pleased to be able to leverage an extensive, talented work force in the region and to continue our long, successful history in Melbourne."
