DURHAM, USA: IBM Lender Business Process Services Inc., a subsidiary of IBM, will hire 600 workers and invest $3.7 million in a new process service center at its North Carolina campus, which is situated in Durham’s Research Triangle Park, in the next two years.

With this the company could get a tax rebate of nearly $8 million from North Carolina state government while paying wages below the local average, if it meets hiring targets and retains the jobs.

IBM had recently said that it would open a new technology service delivery center in Columbia, Missouri, creating up to 800 technical professional jobs.
