TWC will also invest more than $101 million dollars to construct two new buildings. As part of TWC's green initiative, both buildings will be looking for LEED certification.
“Time Warner Cable is proud to be expanding our corporate presence in North Carolina and bringing these new jobs to Charlotte,” said Carol Hevey, executive vice president of operations, Time Warner Cable East Region, in a statement.
Under a grant agreement with the state of North Carolina, the company will hire 225 new employees for different departments including accounting, finance, engineering, IT and human resources by 2014.
“With the addition of these positions, Time Warner Cable will employ nearly 2,800 people in the Charlotte area and more than 6,400 employees across North Carolina,” Hevey added.
TWC is planning to construct a two-story data center building that allows the company to focus on delivering services for customers with greater effectiveness and reliability and with less cost and environmental impact.
The second building is a four-story and 103,500 square foot facility with an estimated completion date of 2013.
“Time Warner Cable has long known what more and more companies across the country are discovering every day: North Carolina is the right place to grow business,” said Gov. Bev Perdue. “Time Warner Cable's sustained ability to grow in our state shows that we are providing the business environment, skilled workforce and infrastructure that businesses need.”Recently, the B2B arm of Time Warner Cable, Time Warner Cable Business Class (TWCBC), has rolled out a new service called as Business Class Online Backup. This data protection service facilitates businesses to automatically back up computer and server files to a secure and remote data center.
