Cintas Corporation, one of the first tenants in CenterPoint Commerce & Trade Park, is expanding its National Accounts Receivable Center for their Fire Protection Division. Due to the expansion, Cintas has relocated its offices to a flex building developed by Mericle Commercial Real Estate Services located at 339 Enterprise Way in Pittston Township.
“Cintas is pleased to be a part of the Northeastern Pennsylvania business community,” said Maria Scagliotti, Director of the Cintas National Accounts Fire Center. “With the expansion of our National Accounts Receivable Center, Cintas will continue to provide job opportunities for area residents while providing high-level service to our customers.”
The Cintas Fire National Accounts Receivable Center is responsible for contacting existing customers to obtain payments for services rendered. Since 2011, the National Accounts Receivable Center has created 50 new jobs for the area. With continued growth over the next five to seven years, the center is projected to hire an additional 65 employee-partners which will more than double the current size of the center.
Mericle Vice President Bill Jones coordinated the real estate transaction along with commercial real estate firm CBRE. He said the Cintas brand is recognized worldwide and its investment in CenterPoint further solidifies the park as one of the premier business destinations in Pennsylvania. “Cintas’ decision to first locate in CenterPoint and now expand here speaks volumes about the park, the quality of the region’s workforce, and the pro-business attitude in Pittston Township,” he said. “We enjoyed customizing our flex space to the company’s exact needs and we look forward to having Cintas as our tenant for many more years.”
Michelle Mikitish, Executive Director of the Greater Pittston Chamber of Commerce, congratulated Cintas on its expansion and praised the company for its support of the chamber and its programs. “Cintas is a great friend to the Greater Pittston business community,” she said. “The company’s local leadership is committed to helping our area grow.”
