US-based business process outsourcing firm, Ibex, has expanded its operations in Portmore, St. Catherine.
Its facilty at Portmore Pines Plaza now employs more than 2,000 employees.
Ibex CEO, Bob Dechant, says the company is half-way towards its goal of hiring 5,000 workers in five years.
He says the company is aggressively driving its expansion plans and will have more announcements soon.
The additional space was created from a former supermarket and is located next to the existing Ibex facility.
Ibex says Proven REIT is the owner of the building and was instrumental in making the project possible.
