BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - A provider of outsourced call center and other business services is planning to open a new facility in western Montana, bringing up to 350 new jobs by next spring to Butte.

Oregon-based FCR announced Friday its new office will offer customer service and technical support jobs answering telephone calls, emails, text messages, and social media communications for a variety of companies and industries. New jobs include supervisory and management positions.

Joe Willauer, of the Butte Local Development Corporation, tells The Montana Standard that he is excited both for the variety and quality of jobs it will mean.

Butte Chamber of Commerce executive director Stephanie Sorini says the new jobs could have broad economic effects for the local economy.

FCR opened a center in Great Falls in 2017.
