The expansion includes a $117,000 investment and the creation of 128 new jobs.
“I want to thank U.S. Solutions Group, Inc. for their continued investment and the new jobs they will create for Tennesseans. U.S. Solutions Group is expanding less than a year after locating to Sullivan County, and today’s announcement helps us in our goal toward becoming the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs,” Haslam said.
“When existing companies choose to reinvest and expand in Tennessee, it reinforces Tennessee’s strengths in comparison to other states in the Southeast and reflects highly on our business-friendly environment, low tax rates and high quality workforce. “I congratulate U.S. Solutions Group, Inc. on their success and look forward to their continued presence in Tennessee,” Hagerty said.
In October 2012, U.S. Solutions Group, Inc. opened its first call center in Tennessee, investing $4.1 million and creating 548 jobs. Due to the growth of its client base and higher than expected call volumes, U.S. Solutions Group, Inc. will hire 120 new employees over the next two months.
