LEWISTON — A customer service and marketing company in Lewiston, Maine, plans to expand and add up to 50 jobs.

Argo Marketing Group says it has acquired the former GCS call center in Pittsfield and plans to hire 20 customer care agents immediately, followed by 30 more within two months.

The company said Thursday that more growth is planned after that.

CEO Jason Levesque says the expansion will give the Pittsifeld-Newport economy a local boost while allowing the company to tap into the area’s highly skilled and dedicated work force.
