More new jobs for the Q.C.

Posted By on Tue, Dec 22, 2009 at 4:08 PM

We must have been a very good city this year. How do we know? Because Zenta, a big company right here in l'il 'ol Charlotte, along with Mayor Foxx and Governor Perdue, announced they're granting our Christmas wish: They're going to hire folks 1,000 in 2010 -- that's on top of the 500 the company hired this year.

So, all you real estate and finance-minded folks who've been living on the government dole, dust of your resume and have your suit cleaned, it's time to go back to work.

Zenta is investing $2 million in the expansion. The company will receive an N.C. job development grant worth $8.6 million.

In August, Zenta announced a 500-job expansion here in a Forest Point Boulevard office building. The company has an option for an additional 16,000 square feet in the building and could expand into a second building in the office park formerly occupied by defunct mortgage lender EquiFirst. Zenta also has about 100 employees at 200 S. Tryon St. And in a previous interview, Senior Vice President Henry Santos indicated it would ultimately make economic sense to consolidate the two Charlotte locations.

I'm sure your new Zenta boss won't be anything like this. Whew.
