Data Dimensions to open data center in Kentucky

Data Dimensions Corporation is investing $3.2 million to open a new data processing center in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky, according to Area Development. Data Dimension's headquarters are in Wisconsin, and the company has over 30 years of experience in the insurance, financial, services, property capital and medical industries, according to the company's website. The new Kentucky data center will process financial transactions.

Data Dimensions expects the 11,000-square-foot facility to need 100 workers over the next year.

Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear is excited for the boost to the economy, Area Development reported.

"Data Dimensions is a highly successful firm, and we couldn't be more excited about the 100 jobs it will create," said Beshear. "The choice to locate here says a lot about our business-friendly climate, ideal location and valuable workforce."

The company received a financial incentive from the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority worth up to $1 million, according to Area Development. The incentive is based on investment and job creation measures.

Businesses coming to Kentucky to take advantage of the financial incentives and strong workforce should partner with technical recruiters to find the most qualified candidates for their open positions.
