Toledo marketing firm looking to add 70+ employees

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Universal Marketing Group, or UMG, of Toledo is looking to hire between 70 and 100 employees. 

The business was started almost a decade ago by friends Steven Horst and Jason Birch, and provides call center services to companies that run infomercials on television.

"What our company does is take phone calls and we make the sales on behalf of certain clients," said Horst.

Now, UMG is looking to add between 70 and 100 new workers at their Airport Highway offices. 

"The goal here is to bring more jobs to our community and to grow our company in the same process," said Horst.

Both founders say they are fortunate to be in a position to expand their business given the current economic climate. 

"As we've continued to grow we've kind of made a name for ourselves in the industry as far as being a very reputable call center that our clients can count on to send their calls to," said Birch.

"It's not booming for every company, fortunately we're very good at what we do," added Horst.

A job fair was held Friday, where some of the 70 plus positions were filled. Jobs are still available though. To apply visit http://www.umg1.com/employment.htm online or apply in person at UGM's offices, located at 5454 Airport Highway in Toledo.
