PC on Call gets tax credit for HQ

        PC On Call, the mobile computer repair service, has received a state tax credit for its planned new corporate headquarters in Sharonville.

        The company, which began national rollout of its mobile service this month in Atlanta, plans to move to a 50,000-square-foot office building in the Summit Woods office park off East Kemper Road in Sharonville by mid-2001.

        The company, which employs 25 at its temporary offices in Sharonville's Kemper Towers, expects its corporate staff to grow to 120 full-time employees within three years as it expands nationally. The Ohio Tax Credit Authority granted the company a 60 percent, seven-year tax credit.

        The expanded agreement calls for San Mateo, Calif.-based to incorporate Procter & Gamble's site into its online network for women and to continue to promote the consumer-product company's brands to its 3.5 million members.
