Barclaycard to close Wilton call center, leaving 227 out of work


Town Manager Rhonda Irish said Tuesday afternoon Barclaycard is closing its Wilton call center.


Barclaycard US, operated by the UK-based Barclays bank, is a credit card and payment services provider and is one of Franklin County’s largest employers.


Janet Mills’ office issued a news release saying the Maine Department of Labor will “use all available resources to support the employees, their families and the Wilton community.”


The sessions will include surveys and find out where workers are from, so the rapid response team “can provide services as close as possible,” she said.


Barclaycard opened its Wilton call center on Weld Road in 2008 and added hundreds of jobs in its first six years.


“Wilton is a beautiful, lakeside community, a great place to live and raise a family, and already has a willing and productive workforce,” Mills said.
