ADP to add almost 600 El Paso jobs with state help

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Human resource and payroll company ADP is expected to add nearly 600 jobs to its operation in El Paso, Texas.

Gov. Rick Perry announced Tuesday that the state offered ADP $2.4 million through the Texas Enterprise Fund.

The fund gives economic development grants to private companies as part of an effort to create jobs in the state.

ADP is expanding its operations in Far West Texas with its El Paso Solutions Center. ADP official Terry McGreehan says the solutions center will "serve as a model for recruiting and employing skilled workers."
