Education Management Corp. has selected the former Deluxe Check Printing building in Robinson as the site for its new $24 million data center as part of its expansion program that will include 160 new jobs and two active data centers.

The Pittsburgh company, which operates career schools throughout the U.S and plans to add a total of 600 new jobs as part of its expansion in the region, will lease the entire 41,000-square-foot building, said Steve Forde, EDMC spokesman.

Plans are to move the first wave of personnel from the Downtown office to the building at 615 McMichael Road, in June. Additional personnel will relocate during the following 12 months from its Downtown headquarters in the K&L Gates (former One Oliver) building, where the current data base is located and will remain and be expanded, he said.

The building containing the data center is included in the plans of the owner, the Sampson-Morris Group of Monroeville, to build an additional five buildings as part of the complex, adding 181,000 square feet, said Michael Morris, the company president. He said the buildings will have from 30,000 to 50,000 square feet each.
