Millennium1 Solutions, a company that outsources business processes for organizations in the financial services, government, retail, and manufacturing sectors, will launch a new office in Sudbury.
The Sudbury centre will offer 250 new jobs at launch, with potential for up to 100 more in the future. The company says it will locate the contact centre at 80 National St., off Maley Drive in New Sudbury.
