Wednesday, August 08, 2012
The Home Depot is making a significant investment in Ogden to support its expanding online business. The new customer service and sales center in Ogden has created some 700 new jobs in the local area.
On Saturday, August 4, with a ribbon cutting ceremony that was achieved with a jigsaw and a two-by-six, HomeDepot.com officially opened its new customer service center in Ogden’s Business Depot
at 801 Depot Drive.
Mayor Mike Caldwell and City Council Chair Neil Garner were on site at the ceremonial “board cutting” which is traditional for The Home Depot’s store grand openings. Associates and their families attended the celebration along with dignitaries including Utah Lt. Governor Greg Bell, Utah State House Representative Gage Froerer, President of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development Spencer Eccles, and HomeDepot.com President Hal Lawton.
The 85,000 square foot customer service and sales center will eventually employ approximately 700 employees. Ogden was chosen over numerous cities in the U.S. as one of only two locations for the state-of-the-art customer service center.
“We are thrilled to have HomeDepot.com be part of Ogden’s vision and for providing much needed jobs to the local economy,” said Ogden’s Business Development Project Manager Peter Makowski. “They are a great addition to BDO and the Ogden business community.”
Ogden’s Community and Economic Development
division continues to recruit
businesses and corporations to the area creating local jobs, infusing the economy, and advancing the business culture of Ogden.
