PHOENIX (AP) - The State Farm insurance company is planning to grow its operations in the Phoenix metropolitan area.
A State Farm spokesman confirmed Tuesday that the company will boost its established operations in metro Phoenix as well as in Dallas and Atlanta.
Those areas are considered strong markets for State Farm.
Illinois-based State Farm reportedly plans to build upon its existing presence to create regional hubs that could employ thousands of new workers.
Tempe is home to State Farm's current Arizona operations.
Several downtown Tempe sites have been marketed to technology companies and to national corporations looking to create regional hubs, including commercial space near Tempe Town Lake.
The Arizona Republic (http://bit.ly/12K4wpx) says State Farm had almost 1,300 full-time employees and 26 part-time workers in Arizona as of December 2011.
