BUFFALO, NY-- Time Warner Cable is expanding in Buffalo.
According to Governor Cuomo's office, the cable company plans to build a state-of-the-art call center at the former Sheehan Hospital site.
The multi-million dollar project will also bring in 150 new jobs over the next five-years.
"Time Warner's decision to expand and create 150 new jobs in Buffalo is another vote of confidence in Western New York being a haven for businesses to stay and grow," Governor Cuomo said in a statement. "My administration has made creating jobs and economic development its highest priority, especially in Western New York and Buffalo. Time Warner Cable's announcement is a testament to New York's growing reputation as the place to do business and I commend them for continuing their commitment to this city and region."
The call center will serve customers of Time Warner Cable Business Class.
"At Time Warner Cable Business Class, we've grown rapidly by combining innovative solutions with world-class, commercial-grade service," said Ken Fitzpatrick, east region president for Time Warner Cable Business Class in a statement. "Buffalo is a natural choice for our expansion: We have a strong employee team today. There's a terrific local workforce as we add 150 new jobs. And our new facility will allow us to deploy the technology and training necessary to provide great service to our customers across the U.S."
