IBM brings service center to Dubuque
After a nearly year-long process, IBM has opened its global technology service center in Dubuque.
The first 300 employees are working in the renovated Roshek Building downtown, with another 300 due to be hired by the end of 2009. Another 700 or so are to be hired in 2010.
The occasion was celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony this morning on Locust Street just outside the Roshek Building.
The senior IBM official on hand, Mike Daniels, was the wrap-up speaker.
