BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) — A computer services company plans to open a new technology center in Bossier City, creating 800 new, high-skill jobs in northwest Louisiana.
Computer Science Corporation announced Tuesday it is locating its Integrated Technology Center in the region, which will focus on cloud computing, cybersecurity and other IT work.
The center will be established at the same research park as the Cyber Innovation Center, a technology research and development corporation which is located next to Barksdale Air Force base and collaborates with Louisiana Tech University.
Gov. Bobby Jindal said the project will make northwest Louisiana one of the nation's new technology hubs and will help it attract other technology companies.
The state will put at least $53 million into the project for expanding computer science programs, relocation expenses and construction costs.
