GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) — Samsung Electronics America is expanding its presence in South Carolina, with 200 new jobs.

The company announced Thursday the opening of a new customer care center in Greenville. Officials say the facility includes training centers, a showcase of the latest Samsung products and a lab for testing real-life consumer experiences. Officials say it will help Samsung identify ways consumers can keep their devices connected to one another and make sure they get the most out of them.

Samsung says the facility will bring 200 new jobs this year and a total of 400 jobs to the region by 2020.

Earlier this year Samsung opened a $380 million home appliance manufacturing plant in Newberry, creating an estimated 950 jobs there by 2020.
