Comcast celebrated the grand opening Thursday of its newly renovated 100,000-square-foot Center of Excellence call center in Tucson.
“The state-of-the art facility will house more than 1,100 employees providing support for Comcast residential products and services, including Spanish-speaking employees who specialize in customer service online and through social media channels,” local economic development agency Sun Corridor Inc. said in a news release.
Comcast announced plans to open the center a year ago, in the former American Home Furnishings building at 4690 N. Oracle Road.
“Comcast’s new presence will bring a $385 million total economic impact to our region through the creation of thousands of new direct and indirect jobs, payroll and capital investment,” Joe Snell, president and CEO of Sun Corridor Inc., said in the news release.
