State Farm expands and leases buildings in Tacoma, WA!

Sources with knowledge of the deal have said State Farm plans to add about 2,000 jobs to the approximately 1,000 already at its operations center in DuPont, WA. 

“We have signed the two leases for office space in Tacoma,” company spokesman Brad Hilliard said, referring to the former Russell headquarters at 909 S. A St. and four floors of the Columbia Bank Center at 1301 S. A St.

The company expects to hire 300 employees this summer, Hilliard said, with operations to begin in the fall. The locations have the capacity of 1,100 people, but Hilliard said the company would continue to evaluate its needs in hiring.
