BROOMFIELD - PlumChoice Inc. expects to hire 70 technical-support agents this year after establishing a training facility in Broomfield.

PlumChoice, based in Lowell, Mass., partners with companies to sell and deliver advanced tech-support services. PlumChoice converted 1,044 square feet of its existing 6,264-square-foot space at West 120th Ave. in Broomfield to serve as a training facility and call center.

New agents will be trained in-house then transition to work-from-home positions upon completion of the program, according to a prepared statement.

"This new facility allows us to leverage talent in and around the Broomfield area so we can continue to grow and evolve our team as technology - and consumers' and small businesses' use of it - advances," said David Temlak, senior vice president of customer service, innovation and delivery at PlumChoice.

Two weeks ago, PlumChoice created a 7,-quare-foot training facility in Lowell to accommodate business growth.

The company gained a presence in Broomfield by acquiring Everon Technology Services in 2010.
