“We spent the past 12 months evaluating multiple locations throughout the South East for the next great ERC Customer Experience Center. All of the research and data pointed to Melbourne for its’ highly skilled workforce, experienced management and robust infrastructure. After a couple of site visits, meetings with the Economic Development Commission of Florida’s Space Coast (EDC) and getting to know some of the great folks around the Melbourne area, the story behind the data began to unfold and we realized that Melbourne was the right choice for the next addition to our family of ERC Centers,” explained Matt Charles, ERC’s chief growth officer.
“It is always exciting when an international company of this caliber selects Brevard County to expand its operations. The company considered several locations throughout the southeast for this project. The EDC identified a competitive location and demonstrated the presence of a viable talent pool matching the requirements of the company, which led to their decision to invest in Brevard County,” said Lynda Weatherman, president & CEO of the EDC.
The new facility in Melbourne offers ERC the opportunity to continue its domestic footprint and further support the needs of clients and the communities it belongs to.
