Ga. labor department to help NCR fill job openings

ATLANTA — The Georgia Department of Labor is planning to help NCR Corp., one of Georgia’s newest companies, fill 53 job openings at its new manufacturing facility in Columbus.

Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond says the department will host a recruitment session Saturday at the Columbus Career Center.

The world’s leading provider of ATMs announced last week it would move its headquarters from Dayton to the Atlanta area and open a separate manufacturing center in Columbus.

State documents show that Georgia lured the world’s leading provider of ATMs to move its headquarters from Ohio with $13 million in grants funded by taxpayers. The grants are part of an incentive package of about $100 million to NCR. Most of the incentives come in the form of tax credits and breaks.

NCR has announced it will eventually create approximately 870 professional and production jobs.
