HICKORY, N.C. (AP) - A company that makes computer software is setting up an operation in Hickory that will create about 190 jobs.

Gov. Pat McCrory said Tuesday that Blue Bloodhound LP plans to spend about $400,000 in setting up the operation.

Blue Bloodhound has developed computer software to help truck drivers maintain safety records and remind them of renewal deadlines. It also can help find jobs for drivers.

The jobs are expected to include customer service representatives, accounting and marketing. The average salaries will be around $46,000 annually.

Blue Bloodhound is getting a performance grant of up to $305,000 from the One North Carolina Fund. The North Carolina Rural Infrastructure Authority has authorized Hickory to use nearly $260,000 to renovate a historic mill building in Hickory for the company.
