SAINT JOHN, N.B. - The New Brunswick government is providing financial support to a company that provides online software for car dealerships in an effort to double its workforce.
DealerMine employs more than 120 workers in Saint John and the government says it plans to hire an additional 135 full-time staff over the next three years.
The government says DealerMine will receive a payroll rebate of up to $290,000 and a forgivable loan of $150,000 through Invest NB if it creates and maintains the extra jobs.
The company will also receive a repayable loan of $100,000 to expand its business development centre in Saint John and is eligible for a payroll rebate of up to $100,000 if it creates and maintains 25 full-time jobs in addition to the 135 extra workers already planned.
The business is owned by an Ontario company and helps car dealerships manage their database of customers, among other services.
It opened its Saint John location in 2001.
