News : EOS USA to Bring 150 Jobs to Eastern Kentucky
Frankfort, KY, USA, May 28, 2015 -- More jobs are coming to eastern Kentucky. Gov. Steve Beshear and Congressman Hal Rogers today announced that EOS USA plans to open an operation in Somerset and hire 150 Kentuckians.
EOS, a provider of customer care and accounts receivables management services, also plans to invest into the project.
"This is a significant boost to the economy here in eastern Kentucky," said Gov. Beshear. "While we still have plenty of work to do, the fact that an industry-leading company such as EOS USA would bring 150 jobs here shows we’re gaining strong momentum. EOS USA will be a tremendous corporate partner to the Commonwealth, and I’m excited for its future in the region."
EOS USA plans to open a customer service call center, which will serve as the company’s flagship national location for its first-party business. The 20,000-square-foot facility, on Valley Oak Drive, will be open before the end of the year. The company chose Somerset for its economical operating costs and skilled workforce.
"EOS USA is excited to expand its operations in Kentucky," said Paul Leary, president and CEO of EOS USA. "The combination of geographic location and available workforce is an ideal fit for the growth of our company."
"I am excited to see the new EOS CCA facility up-and-running in Somerset by the end of the year, which will create 150 new Kentucky jobs," said Sen. Chris Girdler, of Somerset. "I appreciate the faith placed in our community by EOS CCA and look forward to the new opportunities the company will provide our city. I also would like to offer a special thank you to Congressman Rogers and Gov. Beshear for their efforts with this project."
"I want to thank EOS CCA for investing in the future of Somerset, Pulaski County and the Commonwealth," said Somerset Mayor Eddie Girdler. "We will work very closely with EOS CCA in making locating in Somerset a highly profitable decision."
