New call center brings jobs to Ala.

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama site has been selected by a Georgia-based company for a call center with as many as 1,200 full-time workers hired over the next few years.

Officials with Ryla Teleservices, Inc. announced Wednesday that Saraland has been picked for its new regional headquarters, a corporate data center and a regional customer contact center.

Gov. Bob Riley joined Mobile County officials in announcing plans for the center, which will have a base wage of about $21,700 with bonuses and benefits.

Ryla, based in Kennesaw, hopes to fill the first 400 jobs by early summer and the remaining 800 by the end of 2011.

The county commission agreed to provide some $175,000 in incentives over the next two years to bring the Ryla expansion to Saraland.
