A data protection company is expanding in Erie.

MCPc Inc. has outgrown its current State St. location and is moving into 10,000 square feet of space in the Times Publishing Company building on W. 12 St.

The company mainly works with securing data, currently works with Mercyhurst University and is part of the Erie Innovation District.

Company leaders said they found Erie to be a magnet for tech businesses, and they are working as best they can to adapt to new challenges.

MCPc expects to add between 30 and 35 new technology-based security and sustainability jobs.

The company plans to move into the new space in early 2020.
