Telvista permanently closes in Danville


DANVILLE, Va. (WSET) - A Danville company officially closed its doors Wednesday.

Telvista, a call center that helps companies with customer service, announced the closure in January.

An employee said the closure comes after an analysis of the company's operations and business costs called for restructuring.

About 300 people lost their jobs and were offered severance benefits and transition programs.

For some, it is a chance at a new beginning

Asheley Griffin worked at Telvista for seven years, and she said she harbors no ill will.

Griffin said the company held a job fair with other employers and had a resume workshop to help employees network.

She said the company even offered to transfer employees to its Dallas, Texas facility.

Griffin said she only wants the best for Telvista.

"I just want them to succeed. I want them to do well and I'm just rooting for them because I got a lot of people there in Dallas," Griffin said.

One city official told us that Danville is actively looking for a new tenant to take over the location.

He said he doesn't think there will be an issue filling the space.
