Esurance planning SC expansion, 450 jobs

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Insurance provider Esurance is planning to expand in Greenville County.

South Carolina officials said Thursday that Esurance is investing $2.1 million in a new sales and claims office that's expected to create up to 450 jobs in sales and claims.

Esurance was acquired by Allstate in 2011 and sells auto insurance directly to customers online and through call centers.

Officials say the South Carolina office is expected to open this summer. Interested applicants can get more information at .
