A high-tech company that provides computer and technical support to AT&T has chosen Louisville as the site of its newest offices, Mayor Jerry Abramson announced today.
Telamon Corp, based in Carmel, Indiana, will open a technology center in the Newburg neighborhood, creating 10 to 15 jobs in Louisville and another 20 to 25 jobs in the state, with opportunities for future expansion. The company was approved for $435,500 in state tax incentives for up to 10 years.
“We are appreciative of the help that the city and state offered us, and we look forward to becoming an integral part of the business community in Louisville,” said Caleb Ho, president of Telamon – Carrier Services Group.
Telamon’s Louisville office will be located in the Gilmore Industrial Park, where Mayor Jerry Abramson and GLI President Joe Reagan held a ribbon-cutting ceremony today.
“It’s a testament to our city that, even in tough and troubled economic times, Louisville can still recruit and land high-tech jobs for our citizens,” Abramson said. “Telamon is a highly-respected company known for its diversity — and we in Louisville value diversity, too.”
Telamon is one of the nation’s largest Asian-owned businesses in the United States, ranking 9th on the Top 500 list. Established in 1985, Telamon is a $468 million company, with more than 300 employees.
“We’re pleased Telamon chose Louisville to expand its operations,” Reagan said.
“These are exactly the type of new-economy jobs we are working to recruit to Louisville.”
