Yahoo today announced its plans to build new data and customer care centers in Lockport, New York in an urge to provide additional capacity as well as the world-class customer care service, which will ensure that Yahoo will turn out to offer fast product experiences and access to helpful customer support. Along with the building of data center, the company intends that it will create 115 new jobs across the fields of engineering, technology and customer care. The planned expansion will build upon existing Yahoo’s Lockport data center facility, which opened back in 2010.
“We are happy to be a part of the Western New York community and are excited about our expansion plans. We are appreciative of our close partnerships with local municipalities and are grateful to our outstanding workforce in Lockport,” said David Dibble, executive vice president of central technology for Yahoo!. “Yahoo! is committed to being an environmentally responsible company, and we thank New York state and local authorities for working with us to ensure we continue to power our data center with clean energy.”
