Media and global financial information company Thompson Reuters is expanding in Carrollton, adding at least 250 news jobs and investing $6 million, Gov. Greg Abbott announced Wednesday.

A Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) grant offer of $1.5 million has been extended to Thomson Reuters, which is currently ranked 68th by Forbes on the list of World’s Most Valuable Brands.

“Texas is continuing to diversify its economy through the growth of technology companies such as Thomson Reuters, and we are proud they have chosen Carrollton as the site of their next expansion,” said Abbott in a statement.

The city of Carrollton partnered with the Office of the Governor to facilitate state and local support for Thomson Reuters’ expansion.

“Thomson Reuters has an outstanding local workforce and deep roots in the community, so we’re pleased and proud to continue growing in the Dallas area,” said Brian Peccarelli, president of the Tax & Accounting business of Thomson Reuters, which is headquartered in Carrollton.

The company currently has more than 1,000 employees at its existing 240,000-square-foot Carrollton facility in jobs including software development, sales, customer support, finance, human resources, legal, marketing, and project management.

In 2013, Thomson Reuters Corp. closed its Fort Worth office and many of those workers relocated to Carrollton.
