90 new jobs coming to Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Lubbock Economic Development Alliance announced 90 new jobs will be headed to Lubbock. Two companies are expanding their services in the area.

LEDA CEO, John Osborne says this is great for the Lubbock economy.

"This is excellent news for job seekers and employers. As a result of our announcement today, the citizens of Lubbock have even more opportunities to have a good job, working for a good company," Osborne said.

Sprint is adding a captioning telephone service that they will base in Lubbock. CapTel is a service for those who are hard of hearing. The service offers amplified sound as well as text captioning for telephones. This program will bring 70 jobs to Lubbock.

"We have growth of 70 new jobs through CapTell, which is expanding their customer service opportunities here. So we're excited about both companies getting the chance to grow," Osborne said.

The second company, Copy Craft Printers, already calls Lubbock home. However, they were forced to consider moving their headquarters after outgrowing their facilities. After facing-off against multiple cities in Texas, they decided to stay in Lubbock, keeping their 70 existing jobs here while adding 20 more.

"They're already here, they're already established and sometimes just adding five or ten jobs does a tremendous amount of good for them in growing their business and provides some solid growth for our community," Osborne said.

The combined total annual salary of these jobs is over two million dollars. These companies have capital investment totals of more than five million dollars.
