North Carolina-based BB&T announced Thursday it will relocate its mortgage services center to a new site in Mauldin, eventually housing more than 600 employees.
The financial services company said it will invest $30 million in the proposed 140,000-square-foot facility to be located near Interstate 385. The company said the site will handle administrative, back office and support functions. BB&T’s mortgage servicing facilities are currently located in downtown Greenville.
“With this state-of-the-art facility, we will be better equipped to provide our clients with superior service, as we help them fulfill the dream of homeownership,” BB&T mortgage lending president Tol Broome said in the release.
BB&T expects to finish construction by the end of this year.
“The addition of BB&T will positively impact our community and generate more opportunities for the entire Upstate,” Mauldin Mayor Dennis Raines said. “And we are committed to working with them to make this endeavor a huge success.”
