State Farm Insurance plans to create an estimated 500 new jobs in the Peach Tree State when it opens its new customer service center in 400,000 square feet of space at the recently leased Atlanta Perimeter Operations Center located near Perimeter Mall.
Tim McFadden, State Farm Senior Vice President said; "This expansion is just another way State Farm continues to adjust to meet the changing needs and preferences of our customers. We will continue to make business decisions focused on how we can best serve our customers."
"State Farm's decision to locate their new facility here makes a compelling statement about our state's competitive business environment," said Gov. Nathan Deal. "In Georgia, State Farm will find a progressive business infrastructure, along with a highly skilled workforce, that will allow for continued success when it comes to providing the highest levels of customer service to their policyholders."
While a list of incentives offered the firm was not immediately available, the Governor's Office said some existing State Farm employees will work at the new facility, but it will be staffed by predominantly new hires. The new facility will help the company provide sales, service and claims capabilities to better serve their customers.
