NEW CASTLE —
Verizon has relocated part of its downtown New Castle operation to Beaver Falls.
Lee Gierczynski, Verizon spokesman in Pittsburgh, said the move of the corporate finance organization on South Mercer Street affected 20 employees. The move to another Verizon office on Ninth Avenue in Beaver Falls occurred last weekend, he said.
The move was made to consolidate employees in one location, he explained, adding the New Castle facility still has employees who handle network and switching.
A Verizon official with information on the number of employees who left the city and the number still remaining could not be reached Friday.
Ray McConville, manager of media relations for Verizon’s corporate offices in New Jersey, said the company is always evaluating its real estate portfolio to determine “where we can make the most effective use of our employees.”
