WILMINGTON, Del. - Beneficial Corp. said it plans to expand its private-label credit card operation in Tampa, Fla., adding approximately 200 full-time and 100 seasonal jobs.

Beneficial said that to accommodate business growth, it will open an expanded customer service operations center for Beneficial National Bank USA within the next year. The bank will use two floors in the Harbour Island waterfront development; some of the space had been occupied by retail stores.

"This move is a further reflection of Beneficial's commitment to the vital business environment in Tampa," said chairman and chief executive Finn M.W. Caspersen.

Beneficial previously announced it would locate the systems development unit of Beneficial Technology Corp. in Tampa, creating 200 jobs when fully operational. Other subsidiaries in Tampa include the southern group headquarters of Beneficial Management Corporation of America, the headquarters of Beneficial Savings Bank, and Harbour Island Inc.
