AMES, Iowa (AP) - A software company wants more than $2.5 million in state aid to expand in Ames.

Station KCCI reports that the Ames City Council voted Tuesday to endorse the aid application by Vertex Software, which says the expansion could bring 300 new jobs to the area. Many of the jobs would pay more than $100,000 a year.

The company says it’s developed a cloud-based software product that lets users securely share 3D product data to any computing device.

Founder and CEO Dan Murray wants to build a 60,000-square-foot (5,574-square meter) building in Iowa State University’s research park.

Ames finance director Duane Pitcher says it’s “a good news story for Ames, a homegrown company.”
