Call Experts, a leading answering service company, is expanding its existing operations in Charleston County, South Carolina. The company is investing $1.8 million in the project, which is expected to create 310 new jobs over the next five years.
To expand its footprint in Charleston County, Call Experts is adding to its existing facility, with the acquisition of additional space adjacent to the company’s current operations, which are located at 1591 Savannah Highway in Charleston. The expansion will add 7300 square-feet to the company’s current Charleston County facility and allow for the creation of more than 300 new jobs.
With the new facility expected to be fully operational in the third quarter of 2016, hiring for the new positions will begin in summer of 2016. The Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved a $50,000 grant to Charleston County to assist with the costs of real property improvements.
“We started our company in Charleston and we are a people-oriented business. The work ethic we have encountered here has been unmatched. We look forward to our expansion and continuing to contribute to growth in our multi-faceted community. I am proud to be a native Charlestonian and that this business environment has enabled us to bring our services around the world from this exceptional city,” said Abby Leibowitz Pearson, President.
“South Carolina’s becoming known as a manufacturing hotspot, but every industry in the state is on the move, and this investment Call Experts has decided to make in Charleston is further proof of that. The 310 new jobs this fantastic company is creating in the Lowcountry is a huge win for the entire state, and it shows Call Experts’ tremendous commitment to our state and our people,” Governor Nikki Haley said.
“Congratulations to Call Experts on this truly exciting expansion announcement. This ‘home-grown,’ 34-year-old Charleston firm has long provided career opportunities to our citizens. As Call Experts embarks on this exciting new growth phase, they provide much-needed economic energy to the West Ashley area and will help further spur revitalization efforts in this strategically located portion of Charleston County. As they do, we at Charleston County will work alongside the company, the City of Charleston and the State of South Carolina to support their growth,” Charleston County Council Chairman Elliott Summey said.
