OWENSBORO, Ky. — A California-based company is bringing hundreds of jobs to Owensboro with the opening of its new customer service center.

The Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer reports (http://bit.ly/2cJrBCY) Alorica Inc. spokesman Greg Bush says the company will eventually hire 840 people for the center, which will be located in the BB&T Building.

Alorica will become the city’s third-largest private employer in the county — behind Owensboro Health and U.S. Bank Home Mortgage.

Bush says 90 percent of the jobs will be full-time. The first 500 will be hired within 12 months, with the rest being hired within three years.

The center is expected to open sometime between April and June of 2017.

The company, which has over 92,000 employees worldwide, says it offers a full range of solutions to more than 600 companies in various industries.
