SafeAuto Insurance Co., is adding a new contact center and backup data center to service customers nationwide in central Kentucky, a move that will create 236 new full-time jobs.
The facility represents an annual net payroll of $7.3 million, Gov. Steve Beshear and Economic Development Cabinet Secretary John Hindman said in a statement June 5.
SafeAuto is a regional insurance provider offering insurance in 14 states to individuals who wish to carry only the state-required minimum coverage.
The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved SafeAuto in April 2008, for tax benefits up to $3.2 million under the Kentucky Jobs Development Act, a program designed to expand service- and technology-based employment in the state.
