10 Aug, 2016
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced GEICO, the second-largest private passenger auto insurance company in the United States, will expand its service center operations in Western New York, adding 600 full-time jobs at a new location near its existing facility in Getzville. GEICO will invest nearly $11 million to outfit and equip its offices to accommodate its new positions. The state will provide $4 million in capital grants to support GEICO’s expansion in the region.
"Western New York continues to serve as a model for economic growth in upstate New York and GEICO's addition of 600 new jobs in Getzville is proof positive of the REDC’s success," Governor Cuomo said. "This expansion is indicative of the progress we have made in capitalizing on our assets to attract businesses, create well-paying jobs and drive economic growth. By improving the business climate in Western New York and removing artificial barriers to growth, we are fundamentally changing the trajectory of this region and generating optimism and opportunity for years to come.”
