Through Pasco County’s assistance via a Job Creation Incentive, Santander Consumer USA Holdings Inc has announced its plans to open a new location in the Suncoast Crossings area, former Target Building, in Odessa, FL, in 2021.  The facility’s employment will cover a variety of automotive finance, funding, and account servicing functions, as well as a smaller number of back-office roles.

This $12 million capital investment project will provide Santander with a renovated 115,425 square foot facility. The Pasco County location will enable an extension of operation coverage in the Eastern Time Zone of the U.S.  Santander Consumer President and CEO, Mahesh Aditya, has said “We are excited to expand our presence in Florida – a state with a favorable business environment where people are familiar with the Santander brand,”

Completed in late-2021, the facility features a state-of-the art call center, as well as modern office, training, conferencing, and break room spaces for employees.
