TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- A financial services company has chosen Tampa for an expansion that's expected to create up to 255 new jobs.
The Depository Trust & Clearing Corp. said Monday that it's investing $4.8 million in its only Florida campus as part of its long-term expansion strategy. The expansion is the company's first in the region since opening its New Tampa facility nine years ago.
The planned jobs will be in such highly specialized sectors as technology, operations, human resources and finance.
The company says it considered offers from other states with existing operations, but chose Tampa based on several factors, including recruitment potential and quality of living for its employees.
Gov. Rick Scott says the company's investment is a testament to the state's workforce and the resources Florida offers companies.
