Hundreds of Jobs to be Added to Johnstown Area, Langerholc Said

HARRISBURG—Sen. Wayne Langerholc, Jr. (R-35) applauded the news that Convergys Corporation, a global customer management service provider, will create 251 jobs at a new site in Johnstown, Cambria County.

 “I am thrilled that, as the old saying goes, Convergys could have gone anywhere, but they chose Cambria County,” said Langerholc. “The family-sustaining jobs they will create will pay wages that exceed the county average, and will fuel the economy of both the region and the state for years to come.” 

Convergys will lease a 26,636-square-foot facility in Lower Yoder Township to serve as a technical support center. The company is expected to invest more than $2.7 million in the project and create 251 new, full-time jobs over three years. Convergys said it plans to begin hiring this summer and be fully operational in the fall.

“I join state and local leaders in welcoming Convergys to Cambria County. This is wonderful news for job-seekers, community leaders, and taxpayers everywhere, and we wish Convergys and its current and future employees every success,” Langerholc said.   

“Thank you, Convergys, for investing in our community. You will not be disappointed with this community and the caliber of workers who call this region home,” Langerholc added.  “We all celebrate this shared opportunity and are eager to advance your worldwide reputation and success.”
