HAMILTON, Ohio (AP) — A financial services company is opening a call center and promising to create 1,500 jobs in southwest Ohio. The Hamilton-Middletown Journal-News reports that Barclaycard US confirmed Monday that it's opening the center in Hamilton, at Vora Technology Park.

Hamilton’s mayor says the company will have a profound impact on the area's economy. Employees of the center will provide customer service support for people who participate in credit card programs. The company expects to hire up to 250 people next year.
