The Eveleth telemarketing firm that closed earlier this month, taking more than 100 jobs with it, is reopening under a new owner.

The company New Partners Consultants will operate a call center where Meyer Associates used to. 

According to the IRRRB, staffing will begin as early as next week.

IRRRB Commissioner Tony Sertich praised Jerry Samargia, a Gilbert native and partner in the new company, for his investment in the center.

Employees from the now-closed Meyer Associates say they still have not received their final paychecks.

Meyers Teleservices closed in early April
