Fort Wayne Postal Remote Encoding Center Adding Jobs

According to Inside Indiana Business:

The U.S. Postal Service Remote Encoding Center in Fort Wayne is adding workers. The center has added 111 jobs since the same time last year to handle an increasing workload as other centers around the nation close. The City of Fort Wayne recently awarded the Fort Wayne REC a $70,000 grant to assist with facility improvements.

Once numbering 55, just 8 Remote Encoding Centers are now maintained by the Postal Service across the country. That number is expected to continue to decrease over time. Located at 2980 East Coliseum Boulevard since 1995, the Fort Wayne REC currently employs a total of 584 workers, up from 473 at this time last year. The workload has grown by approximately 20% as well. Over 500 million pieces are expected to be processed this year in Fort Wayne, up from 427 million in 2006.
