MONROE, La. (AP) — CenturyLink plans to break ground as early as next month on a 250,000-square foot expansion of its corporate headquarters in Monroe.
The company told The News-Star (http://tnsne.ws/V9OuCY ) on Thursday the CenturyLink Technology Center of Excellence will include technology research and development labs, a network operations center and office and meeting space.
In the center, employees and vendors with network technology and IT skills will work together to create innovative products and services for CenturyLink's customers.
The center, which will be located on the north side of CenturyLink's existing headquarters building, will accommodate about 800 employees and is part of an expansion announced in 2011.
The state will contribute up to $14.9 million toward the expansion, or 50 percent of the total cost if the project is less than $29.8 million.
