Good news for employment in the area.

Lynn Haven officials said this morning General Dynamics will open a call center in the old Sallie Mae facility and it will create 1600 new jobs for the community.

City manager John Lynch says the firm will handle calls for Medicare and Medicaid. Negotiations for the company have been ongoing for some time. Lynch says Don Nations of Nations Real Estate worked with everyone involved in getting the deal done.

"Everyone is happy," he said. "It’s a great situation for bringing jobs into our community."

The exact opening day isn’t available just yet but we have learned General Dynamics has already turned power on for the building and some renovation work is about to begin so the facility can become operational soon.
