JUNCTION CITY, Kan. (AP)-- A Junction City building where a call center shut down after just 18 months of operation is getting a new tenant in the same line of business.
The Daily Union reports the city has signed a six-year lease with Advanced Call Center Technologies. The company plans to begin operating June 1 and hire 150 employees by the end of the year, with a goal of 650 employees within five years.
The vacant, state-of-the-art facility was built for Capgemini in 2007 at a cost of $4.675 million, funded through industrial revenue bonds. Capgemini had 130 employees when it closed the Junction City operation in 2009.
Advanced Call Center Technologies currently has 4,800 employees providing contact and back office support functions for financial services, communications and technology firms.
