Comcast will add 425 jobs in the region when it opens a new service center in Dauphin County this summer.

The cable company on Wednesday announced it is leasing a state-of-the-art facility at 2801 Valley Road in Susquehanna Township "to better serve Comcast's growing customer base" in the midstate, spokeswoman Jennifer Bilotta said.

"This is an ideal midstate location with a strong and talented labor market," Jim Samaha, senior vice president of Comcast's keystone region, said in a statement.

Jobs will be posted next week. Those interested in obtaining a position with Comcast can review opportunities and apply at www.comcast-jobs.com, she said.

The company is recruiting workers from across the region, which includes York County, Bilotta said.

Employees at the new 110,000-square-foot center will provide support for all Comcast residential products and services, taking calls from customers across the company's northeast division.

The Philadelphia-based company serves about 8 million customers throughout 14 states in its northeastern division, Bilotta said.

Comcast's new center will be its sixth in Pennsylvania, where it employs 12,000 workers across the state.

"This new facility represents our latest investment in the tools, technologies and people that will help improve our customers' experiences with us," Paul D'Arcangelo, senior vice president of customer care for Comcast's northeast division, said in a statement.
