New Service Center Creates Over 200 Jobs

LEXINGTON - Community leaders and company officials from Allconnect Inc., a consumer services company, celebrated Monday the opening of the company’s new in-bound sales and customer care center in Lexington. The company announced its decision to locate the new facility in the Coldstream Research Campus earlier this year. The project represents a nearly $7 million investment and approximately 220 new jobs for the community.

The Lexington Allconnect operation will allow consumers to order or transfer home services, such as satellite and cable TV, Internet, phone, and home security service. Allconnect is based in Atlanta and has relationships with a variety of service providers across the country, including AT&T, Comcast, DIRECTV, DISH Network, Time Warner Cable and Verizon. 

The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved Allconnect for tax incentives up to $2.2 million through the Kentucky Business Investment program.
