State Farm Insurance is bringing 500 new jobs to Georgia.

The new jobs will be located at the recently leased Atlanta Perimeter Operations Center located near Perimeter Mall.

“State Farm’s decision to locate their new facility here makes a compelling statement about our state’s competitive business environment,” said Gov. Nathan Deal. “In Georgia, State Farm will find a progressive business infrastructure, along with a highly skilled workforce, that will allow for continued success when it comes to providing the highest levels of customer service to their policyholders.

The office is expected to open for business later this year. While some existing State Farm employees will work at the new facility, it will be staffed by predominantly new hires. The new facility will help the company provide sales, service and claims capabilities to better serve their customers.

“This expansion is just another way State Farm continues to adjust to meet the changing needs and preferences of our customers,” State Farm Senior Vice President Tim McFadden said. “We will continue to make business decisions focused on how we can best serve our customers.”

State Farm is the state’s largest insurance company.
