NILES, Ohio (WKBN) – An international company with a facility in Trumbull County is expecting to add nearly 300 more jobs to the facility in Niles.

According to the Tribune Chronicle, Alorica announced Tuesday it will expand its workforce nationwide to include 270 additional jobs at the Niles location on Route 422 – the former West Corporation.

Irvine, Cali.-based Alorica completed the acquisition of West Corporation’s agent services businesses for $275 million.
