URDANETA CITY– Minacs, a major call center company with head office in Libis, Quezon City has confirmed its plan to establish a call center here that will initially open 1,000 jobs.
Councilor Higinio Agsalud, majority floor leader of the city council, said officials of Minacs came to the city twice to express their determination to set up a call center in the city.
When fully operational, the call center will have openings for up to 3,000 call center agents who will be working on three shifts daily.
“The coming of Minacs will stimulate business activities in Urdaneta as several establishments will be prompted particularly restaurants, to open 24 hours a day in order to cater to the demands of call center agents on duty,” Agsalud said.
Minacs is set to rent the whole second floor of the city's public market and the high-rise Shahani Building along the Maharlika Highway in barangay Nancayasan.
The same firm also offered to set up and operate a separate call center in Dagupan City and in other big cities in the country.
In Dagupan, Minacs plans to rent the entire idle third floor of the Malimgas Public Market or the former MC Adore Hotel which is now owned by the Dagupan City government.
Minacs officials were accompanied by former Senator Leticia Ramos Shahani and her son, former Sixth District Rep. Ranjit Ramos Shahani when they called on Urdaneta Mayor Amadeo Perez Jr.
Agsalud hailed the coming of Minacs as it will open jobs to thousands of graduates and unemployed professionals in Urdaneta City, which is the education center in eastern Pangasinan. –LM
