A health-care services company is expanding its North Carolina operations by adding 1,200 jobs at a new location in Charlotte and its existing facility in Concord.
Orlando, Fla.-based Connextions, Inc. said Thursday that growing demand for its call center-based services prompted the expansion.
The company plans to hire 800 people for the Charlotte facility and add 400 jobs in Concord.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the 61,000-square-foot facility in Charlotte is scheduled for July. The company plans to hold a hiring fair the same day.
Connextions President Steven Auerbach says the expansion is in keeping with the company's "onshore" philosophy. All of its more than 4,000 total employees are based in the United States.
