- Dec 22, 2016
Willmar, Minn.—Enhanced Resource Centers recently announced its plan to lease the former Kandiyohi Power Cooperative building at 1311 N. Highway 71 in Willmar, Minn. The company will use the property as a call center.
The company, which specializes in customer management, said it will create up to 238 new positions at the facility and invest $2 million in building improvements over the next three years. The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) is supporting the project with a $563,183 grant from the Job Creation Fund. The company will receive the funding once it meets investment and hiring commitments.
“The company’s decision to bring more than 200 jobs to Willmar is tremendous news for the region,” said DEED Commissioner, Shawntera Hardy. “This is an exciting opportunity that will contribute to the growth of the local economy and community.”
DEED has awarded $33.6 million for 75 business expansion projects in Minnesota since the Job Creation Fund was launched in January 2014. Companies throughout the state have committed to create 4,603 full-time jobs and invest $900.4 million.
