Michael Shore, MEDC
Michigan Wins $4.6-Million Customer Contact Center, 155 Jobs
Technology Center in Flint. The project will create 155 new jobs, including 110 directly by the company. Assistance offered through the Michigan Economic Development Corporation helped convince ParkingCarma to choose Michigan instead of competing sites in California and North Carolina.
An economic analysis conducted by the MEDC estimates that increased economic activity created by the new customer contact center will generate an additional 45 indirect Michigan jobs, in addition to the 110 created directly by the company. The project is expected to generate more than $37 million in personal income for Michigan workers over the life of the tax credit.
The ParkingCarma project is one of five economic development projects the Governor announced today. In all, they are expected to create and retain a total of 1,790 Michigan jobs.
