PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Comcast Corp. says it's planning a customer support center outside Harrisburg that will employ 425 people.
The Philadelphia-based cable giant says the center will be located in Susquehanna Township and is scheduled to open this summer. Employees there will provide support for Comcast's residential products and services.
In a statement, Gov. Tom Corbett is thanking the company for bringing jobs to central Pennsylvania. Comcast's executive vice president, David Cohen, recently endorsed the Republican governor's bid for re-election.
Comcast also operates five other call centers in Pennsylvania. The company says that once the jobs are filled at the new support center, its total employment in Pennsylvania will be around 12,000.
