A technology services company that is hiring hundreds of workers for its Raleigh call center will be bought by Xerox.
Affiliated Computer Services of Dallas will be acquired for about $6.4 billion in cash in stock, the companies announced this morning. The deal will help expand Xerox's business beyond printers and document management products into more services for corporations.
ACS already employs about 2,500 people in North Carolina, including 1,000 at a Cary facility and 700 in Raleigh. The company provides customer-support services for health-care, government and other customers.
In August, ACS announced plans to hire 465 people to expand its Raleigh call center, including 125 permanent and full-time positions, and 340 temporary jobs.
