Cedar Falls firm says it's adding 400 to payroll

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) - A Cedar Falls debt collection company says it intends to hire about 400 people as part of a major expansion.

CBE Group announced its expansion plan Tuesday, saying the hiring is necessitated by significant growth and a new, multiyear contract with an unnamed telecommunications company. CBE says on its website that it has 80 years of experience in the debt collection industry.

About half of the jobs are expected to be filled by March, and the remainder within 12 to 18 months.
