Dozens of new jobs will soon be coming to the Iron Range. The Delta Airlines Call Center is expanding in Chisholm and U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar toured the facility Wednesday.

The Minnesota Senator spent the day talking with employees and learning how the Call Center works. She said creating jobs on the Iron Range is important for our Minnesota economy, but she was also impressed by the people here.

"The thing I most noticed was that the people were friendly," Klobuchar said. "That people seemed to enjoy their coworkers."

Klobuchar said that's good for morale which is also good for business. She said the Call Center is one of the best in the world and offers good-paying jobs to Minnesotans.

The Call Center currently employs 460 people and that will increase to 525 full-time employees once the facility gets a makeover.

"It's going to create a much better work environment for them," Associate Customer Engagement Director Tony Zupancich said. "It's going to be clean; it's going to be new."

The $5.9 million dollar remodel will be done in about 18 months.

Once construction is finished, they will start hiring new people. Outside construction will start this fall and inside work will begin in December.
