Call center provider to invest more than $1.4 million
FRANKFORT, Ky. (July 13, 2012) — Louisville-based Easy Connect LLC, a call center provider, plans to create 97 new, full-time jobs and invest more than $1.4 million in the state.
Easy Connect plans to add 8,000 s.f. to its existing 9,700 s.f. facility in Louisville’s Eastpoint Business Center, which currently employs 35 people. The company recently signed a contract with Dish Network to become an approved vendor to handle calls for their 3,500 retailers. Easy Connect also has contracts to sell numerous entertainment, communications and home automation/security products.
“We’re extremely excited to expand here in Louisville,” said Brett Nuss, president of Easy Connect. “The workforce in Kentucky coincides with our company’s core values. Our performance-based compensation plan allows us to attract and retain the highest quality employees that our clients demand. We look forward to the growth of our sales and marketing research company and continuing to serve our customers and partners nationwide.”
The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives up to $750,000 through the Kentucky Business Investment program. The performance-based incentive allows a company to keep a portion of its investment over the term of the agreement through corporate income tax credits and wage assessments by meeting job and investment targets.
“We are thrilled to see this rapid growth with Easy Connect,” said Eileen Pickett, executive vice president of Greater Louisville Inc. “It speaks to the talented workforce the company was able to attain in Louisville, securing a contract with a large satellite television provider and tripling in size.”
