The cat has been let out of the proverbial bag, so to speak, about the latest employer to announce they are opening up for business soon on the Grand Strand! Earlier today, Startek, Inc., a worldwide provider of business process outsourcing services, is opening up a new customer support center. This will create as many as 665 new jobs in our area over a 5-year period, resulting in an annual economic impact exceeding $45 million dollars (according to local experts). They are also investing $10 million in the construction of a 50,000 sq. foot facility in Carolina Forest that is scheduled to be completed next fall. Until then, they will set up temporary operations in a spot provided by Horry-Georgetown Tech. The company will begin hiring in January. Kudos to Brad Lofton & the MB Regional Economic Developement Corporation, County Council, and others for working together on this effort. Keep up the good work, folks !!!!!
