PORT ANGELES: Telemarketing center may bring 50 jobs with it


PORT ANGELES — An unidentified company is 45-days away from making a decision on whether to base a call center in the city.

A positive decision could mean up to 50 more jobs for North Olympic Peninsula residents, Executive Director of the Clallam County Economic Development Council Jim Haguewood said.

The company is interested in leasing a building owned by the Port of Port Angeles on O Street, Haguewood said.

Haguewood would not reveal the identity of the company, citing the sensitive nature of current talks.

He said company officials find the building an attractive possibility because of its past history as an operations center.

The company and other agencies across the North Olympic Peninsula met at council offices last week to hash out potential hurdles, Haguewood said Thursday.
