LOUISVILLE, Ky. (April 18, 2013) — Against a backdrop of hundreds of computers and the service personnel that make up its new technical operations center, CompuCom Systems, Inc. introduced today its new Louisville facility and its plans to grow operations at 10100 Linn Station Road.
Mayor Greg Fischer and officials from Greater Louisville Inc. – the Metro Chamber of Commerce – saluted the company and its management for the tremendous growth the company has experienced since coming to Louisville in 2004.
“CompuCom’s expansion is the type of investment and job creation that I like to see in Louisville – highly-skilled, highly-technical and well-paid,” Fischer said. “The company is a great fit for our city.”
In the past three years, CompuCom has seen its technical operations center in Louisville grow from a 120-seat space in eastern Jefferson County to its new facility, which can accommodate up to 335 service personnel. CompuCom provides IT infrastructure services 24×7 to clients globally from Louisville. The company plans to add 100 new IT support associates in Louisville by the end of 2013 and an additional 100 positions throughout 2014.
“Not only are we thrilled by CompuCom’s growth, but it is just as thrilling that the growth is in our important IT sector where we see so much potential for high-paying jobs that attract an educated and engaged workforce,” said Craig Richard, president and CEO of Greater Louisville Inc.
Louisville has been the home of CompuCom’s data center services practice since 2008 supporting network, server, storage and backup technologies remotely for many of its largest customers. This is a huge growth area for CompuCom in which they plan to continue to expand. With the expansion into this larger facility, CompuCom has started delivering service desk services from Louisville as well, complementing their other U.S. service desk operations in Dallas, Texas. CompuCom also has service centers in Mexico, Canada and India.
“Louisville has been and continues to be attractive to us because of its well-educated workforce that embodies a strong work ethic, and our hugely positive experience doing business in Louisville since 2004,” said CompuCom Divisional CEO Tony Doye. “In addition, Louisville offers a geographically desirable location at the edge of Eastern time zone, and the city and GLI have been strong business supporters.
