AMHERST, N.Y. (AP) - The insurer Geico has announced plans to add 600 jobs in western New York over six years with the state expected to provide $4 million in support.

Chief Executive Tony Nicely thanked Gov. Andrew Cuomo for the help during a news conference Tuesday.

Cuomo says it’s highly competitive among states to attract private sector jobs, and that $4 million is “a paltry amount” for New York to subsidize the company’s plan.

The building is down the street from the company’s Buffalo regional office, where it already employs 2,700 people.

Geico is owned by billionaire investor Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
