OXFORD — A debt collection call center in Oxford has closed its doors, putting 64 people out of work.
CCS Global Holdings closed the office on Route 26 on Wednesday without warning and workers spent Thursday clearing office equipment out of the building.
A human resources manager at the Newton, Mass.-based company called the closure "a business decision" and refused to elaborate.
He tells the Sun Journal that the company's other locations in New Hampshire and Massachusetts are not affected.
The Maine location employed 64 people who made collection calls for credit card companies. It opened in 2003.
A spokesman for the state Department of Labor says the agency would contact employees who lost their jobs at CCS to answer questions about unemployment and other benefits.Tweet
