Health Insurance Company Opening Call Center in Alabama

Medical insurance provider Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama will open a call center in Huntsville, Alabama, according to the Huntsville Times. A company spokesperson tells the Times that the center will employ approximately 80 people, with the jobs being transfered back to Alabama after being outsourced to a company in Arkansas. Jim Brown of Blue Cross says that Huntsville was chosen because it is "a good location to attract a talented work force." The call center will be located in approximately 44,000 square feet of a flex office/industrial building in the western part of Huntsville; the company says the core and shell of the building will be LEED certified for energy efficiency. No information was released regarding financial investment or incentives offered to the company.
