(Harrisburg) -- Plans to bring more than 400 call center jobs to the midstate are being hailed as an important economic milestone for the region.
Harrisburg Regional Chamber and CREDC Vice President Amma Johnson says Comcast's decision to locate a center in Susquehanna Township, Dauphin County, utilizes the region's strengths.
"We do have a number of successful call centers, so that'd definitely a plus," Johnson says "In terms of our location, we're really great for this kind of business because you can get what you would get in a (major) metro market, but you're not going to pay metro market prices."
Johnson says people filling the 425 jobs at the center will help boost the midstate's overall economy.
The Comcast center is expected to open this summer and workers will handle customer service calls from 14 northeastern states.
