imgresOracle has announced plans to bring 200 jobs to San Antonio by 2016 in a new operations center.
The deal is contingent on the approval of economic development incentives from local government. The San Antonio City Council will consider a $1 million grant for Oracle on Thursday and the Bexar County Commissioners Court will consider Oracle’s application for an economic development grant at its meeting on Tuesday.
“The negotiated agreement is expected to be brought back to Commissioners Court on June 3 for final approval,” according to a news release.
The Oracle center will hire finance and contractual support service workers.
“San Antonio is making tremendous strides in attracting companies in 21st century industries,” Mayor Julian Castro said in a news release. “These 200 jobs at Oracle will be a powerful addition to the city’s fast-growing IT sector.”
“Oracle’s interest in locating operations here is proof that our economy is strong and our business climate is attractive to such global companies,” County Judge Nelson Wolff said in a news statement. “This also affirms that we are building a diverse multi-industry economy where our residents can find meaningful career opportunities.”
“San Antonio offers opportunities for economic growth as well as a highly skilled workforce, making it an ideal location for Oracle,” Oracle Vice President of Real Estate and Facilities Randy Smith said in a news release. “This new location will bring new jobs to San Antonio and serve a critical financial function for our North America and Latin American businesses.”
