NationsBank Corp. has cut the ribbon on a credit card call center in Rio Rancho, N.M.

The 77,000-square-foot, 15-acre facility employs 190 people now, but that number is expected to grow to 1,000 within five years.

NationsBank Card Services has other offices in Charlotte, N.C.; Dover, Del.; and Norfolk, Va.

Eileen M. Friars, president of NationsBank Card Services, said the call center's opening "marks the beginning of an exciting long-term partnership between NationsBank Card Services, the Rio Rancho community, and New Mexico."
