TEXAS GOVERNOR SAYS ADP WILL ADD 585 JOBS IN EL PASO

(The following is a reformatted version of a press release
issued by the Office of the Governor of Texas and received via
e-mail. The release was confirmed by the sender.) 
Gov. Perry Announces ADP to Create 585 Jobs in El Paso 
December 11, 2012 
Gov. Rick Perry announced ADP is expanding its operations in El
Paso, creating 585 jobs and $22 million in capital investment.
Texas is providing $2.4 million from the Texas Enterprise Fund
(TEF) to finalize this expansion and job creation. 
“Texas is a beacon of economic freedom and opportunity, which is
why employers looking to expand or relocate continue to choose
the Lone Star State,” Gov. Perry said. “Companies like ADP know
that our strong commitment to low taxes, reasonable regulations,
fair courts and a skilled workforce make Texas the best place to
live, work, raise a family and have a business.” 
ADP provides human resource, payroll, tax and benefits
administration solutions to approximately 600,000 clients
worldwide. 
“The City of El Paso and the State of Texas are excellent
locations to do business,” ADP El Paso Solutions Center Vice
President and General Manager Terry McGreehan said. “ADP
continues to provide leading-edge Human Capital Management
services for all our clients and we’re delighted that our El
Paso Solutions Center will serve as a model for recruiting and
employing skilled workers to support those efforts. We look
forward to working with the City of El Paso and the State of
Texas to accomplish great things together.” 
“The partnership between ADP and El Paso has greatly benefitted
both the company and our community,” El Paso Mayor John Cook
said. “We are thrilled that this outstanding corporate citizen
has decided to deepen their roots here by this significant
commitment of new high paying jobs and capital investment.” 
“ADP has a good history with El Paso, El Paso County, Texas,”
State Rep. Marisa Marquez said. “Their company’s expansion
through this Texas Enterprise Fund grant will create a much
needed economic boost to the community and the state. All of us
should applaud their commitment to create an additional 585 jobs
in El Paso and the $22 million committed to capital
expenditure.” 
The Legislature created the TEF in 2003 and has re-appropriated
funding in every legislative session since then to help ensure
the growth of Texas businesses and create more jobs throughout
the state. TEF projects must be approved by the governor,
lieutenant governor and speaker of the House. The fund has since
become one of the state’s most competitive tools to recruit and
bolster business. To date, the TEF has invested more than $484.5
million and closed the deal on projects generating more than
65,499 new jobs and more than $17.4 billion in capital
investment in the state.
