FRANKFORT, Ky. (May 28, 2015) – More jobs are coming to eastern Kentucky.
Gov. Steve Beshear and Congressman Hal Rogers today announced that EOS USA plans to open an operation in Somerset and hire 150 Kentuckians.
EOS, a leading provider of customer care and accounts receivables management services, also plans to invest nearly $4 million into the project.
“This is a significant boost to the economy here in eastern Kentucky,” said Gov. Beshear. “While we still have plenty of work to do, the fact that an industry-leading company such as EOS USA would bring 150 jobs here shows we’re gaining strong momentum. EOS USA will be a tremendous corporate partner to the Commonwealth, and I’m excited for its future in the region.”
“This announcement is another great testament to the high quality workforce we have in southern and eastern Kentucky,” said Congressman Rogers. “EOS was looking for reliable employees to ramp up their business and I applaud the Southeast Kentucky Economic Development Corporation for assuring company leaders that they could end the search here in our region. With the driving spirit of SOAR ¬ Shaping Our Appalachian Region, we’re gaining momentum in business and industry recruitment efforts. We’re putting folks back to work and securing a better future with more opportunities in sight.”
