TD Bank today is opening a new call center in Auburn, the bank’s latest addition to its presence in Maine.

The new center will create hundreds of jobs in Lewiston-Auburn. Once it reaches full capacity of 500 workers in 2011, TD Bank will employ nearly 3,000 Maine residents, the bank said.

The environmentally friendly building is designed to achieve LEED Gold certification. It will serve customers from Maine to Florida. 

The new call center is located in the west side of the Auburn Mall, at 550 Center St.

Elected officials, including Gov. John Baldacci, and U.S. Sens. Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, are joining TD Bank in unveiling the new facility.
