Earlier today, Birch Communications announced a newly acquired company from Florida will bring 50 jobs from the Phillippines to the United States. Half of them will be located right here in Macon. President and CEO, Vincent Oddo, says this new acquisition will help Birch insource their resources, and create jobs here instead of overseas.
"We like being here, we like the workforce that is here we've been here 15 years we certainly want to support it, we want to do everything we can to support it."
The Macon Branch of Birch Communications is the largest operation in the country with around 250 employees. They expect to begin hiring more people as early as October.
