Lowe's to establish support center in Albuquerque

Mooresville, N.C.-based Lowe’s announced plans for a new Customer Support Center in Albuquerque, N.M. 

The center is expected to be operational during the first quarter of 2012, complementing the company's existing center located in Wilkesboro, N.C.

“We chose Albuquerque because of the talented and experienced work force and availability of a suitable building to house our operations,” said Don Easterling, Lowe’s VP contact center. “Albuquerque’s location in the Mountain Time Zone offers an ideal complement to our Customer Support Center in North Carolina. The support of state and local officials made this a win-win project.”

The project is estimated to create 250 jobs by March and a total of 600 jobs by the end of 2013.

Lowe’s plans to invest more than $15 million to renovate leased space in a 65,000-sq.-ft. building at 6301 Jefferson Ave., NE. The new center will provide multiple support functions for Lowe’s, including customer care, store support, Internet sales support and repair services for customers.
