AAA EXPANDING FAIRFIELD OPERATIONS
225 Employees Will Move Into New Facility by Mid 2009
SAN FRANCISCO, November 12, 2008 – AAA Northern California is announcing that 225 employees will be moving into a new facility at 5251 Business Centre Drive in Fairfield. Of those employees, about 165 will be relocating from the San Francisco headquarters, and about 60 others will relocate from their current office in Fairfield.
“Where we locate specific functions is based on what makes the most sense for the business unit and the company, and the new Fairfield location is a perfect fit,” said Matt Skryja, AAA Northern California spokesperson. “The addition of more jobs in Fairfield means not only an economic boost for the Solano County economy, but it also is the most efficient and cost-effective way to organize our work groups.”
AAA needed a larger facility in Solano County given that AAA is joining its business fulfillment center operations, already in Fairfield, with business fulfillment center employees currently working in the San Francisco headquarters. This includes employees from accounts receivable, billing services, copy center, corporate mail, membership operations, records services, and travel accounting. Other teams coming from headquarters will draw from the information technology, human resources and finance divisions.
The new office location is a 104,000-square-foot, single-story building, of which AAA will lease 52,000 square feet.
Employees are scheduled to begin phased relocation to the new facility in March 2009 and complete the move by June 2009.
AAA Northern California offers a wide array of automotive, travel, insurance, DMV, financial services and consumer discounts to more than 4 million members. AAA has been a leader and advocate for the safety and security of all travelers since it was founded more than 100 years ago.
