Mobile phone and tech device insurance company Asurion is expected to announce plans to open in Nevada a service call center that would create up to 800 jobs within five years, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
Initially, the Nashville-based company would provide 500 jobs when it opens in the next few months in 90,000 square feet of the Montecito Point office complex Beltway in northwest Las Vegas, the paper reports.
The Review-Journal article (read here ) notes Asurion officials in January made a presentation to the Governor’s Office of Economic Development requesting tax incentives. It recently determined that it would expand in Las Vegas, the paper reports.
The move would come after the Atlanta Business Chronicle reported Asurion would close its Atlanta-area software development center by March 31, resulting in 29 job cuts (read here ). Asurion announced a 250-employee expansion more than two years ago.
Similarly, in July 2013 Asurion said it would hire 500 people for a new technical support center in Phoenix.
Asurion, officials for which could not be reached for comment, employs more than 10,000 people and has about 280 million customers worldwide. The company is marking 20 years of operations this year.
