DUNCANSVILLE - North American Communications plans to add up to 100 new jobs locally before the end of 2014.
The company, an international leader in direct mail marketing, also announced the launch of its new Supplier Diversity Program beginning today.
Having added 58 new jobs since September, NAC anticipates business growth that will result in the need to hire individuals in entry level, skilled, technical and management positions over the next six to nine months.
As part of the Supplier Diversity Program, NAC will purchase competitively priced quality goods and services from diverse suppliers who uphold the same shared values of corporate responsibility. The company is inviting all certified minority and women-owned businesses from the region to participate.
"We are committed to building a strong Supplier Diversity Network and understand that increasing the inclusion of minority and women-owned businesses improves the economic stability in the communities in which we serve," said NAC President Rob Herman, in a statement.
The new jobs are good news for the area.
"It's always encouraging when an employer like North American Communications announces plans to add to its workforce. Their history in Blair County has been impressive, and Rob and Tera Herman have gone to great lengths to ensure that company has been able to maintain a strong presence here, even when the economy made things difficult," said President and CEO Joe Hurd of the Blair County Chamber of Commerce.
