Frontier Secure to bring 500 jobs to Wise
Frontier Secure is planning to open a customer care center in Wise County, creating up to 500 new jobs.
Frontier Secure is a division of Stamford, Conn.-based Frontier Communications Corp., which provides communications services to customers in 29 states. Frontier Secure helps home and small business customers with a variety of digital communications services, including high-tech products, identity protection, computer security and new applications for the “Internet of Things.”
The customer care center will provide customer and technical support for its clients.
Virginia competed against Connecticut, Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia for the project.
The Virginia Coalfield Economic Development Authority approved a $5.6 million loan to the Wise County Industrial Development Authority to secure the deal. The Virginia Tobacco Region Revitalization Commission approved $2 million for the deal.
The center will be located at 10431 Pinnacle Drive, and the company's first training class will begin August 14 with 50 employees.
