TelePacific ramps up workforce to keep up with growing customer demand

TelePacific is doing something that for the past few years has been a challenge for most companies: hiring more employees to keep up with growth in its California, Nevada and Texas region.

The service provider said it had had filled a number of positions last quarter and it forecasts that it will have "created nearly 200 new jobs" by the end of 2011.

This hiring drive is to deal with ongoing growth inside the service provider.

In addition to its own organic growth, the service provider conducted a number of acquisitions of other regional service providers since 2009, including Tel West Network Services in Texas and Orange County Internet Xchange (OCiX, Inc.) in California.

Ramping up the employee base will be certainly needed as the CLEC completes its integration process of its two latest acquisitions and takes on more complex customer needs.
