CARY, N.C. – formally opened its national customer service headquarters in Cary on Monday.

The six-story building covers 143,000 square feet and can house more than 700 employees, according to the company.

Siemens Medical supports its medical imaging equipment and software from its Cary Medical Campus. The campus also includes a new 600-car parking deck as well as a cafeteria and two centers for training and development.

The company launched construction of the new building and parking deck in 2008. The expansion is also expected to include some 300 new jobs.

Siemens Medical will receive $5.6 million in tax rebates through a North Carolina Job Development Investment Grant if it meets all new-job creation goals.

"Service is more than just a word: It is a commitment to excellence," said Rick Legleiter, senior vice president for Customer Service at Siemens Healthcare. "Providing 24×7 service and support to our customers is essential to the health and welfare of hospitals and medical facilities – and ultimately, the healthcare of their patients."
