Growing Demand for Identity Services Brings More Jobs to Springfield, Ill

June 17, 2014, Springfield, III.

MorphoTrust USA (Safran), a leading U.S. provider of identity solutions and services and 20-year Springfield-area business veteran, today opened its new, larger facility. The expansion includes a larger customer service call center to support its rapidly growing live scan fingerprinting business, which includes enrollment in the Transportation Security Administration's TSA Pre✓™ program and other programs under TSA's Universal Enrollment Services, including the Transportation Worker Identity Credential (TWIC) and the Hazardous Materials Endorsement Threat Assessment Program (HTAP).

MorphoTrust is already one of the largest private-sector employers in Springfield, and has served as a local economic anchor since 1994 when a predecessor company, Innovative Archival Solutions, began providing fingerprinting services to the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services. MorphoTrust will retain a workforce of 106 employees from the previous Springfield location, and is planning to hire at least 50 additional staff as the demand for identity enrollment and verification services increases.

"MorphoTrust is thrilled to be able to expand our longstanding relationship with the city of Springfield," said MorphoTrust CEO Bob Eckel. "Not only are we proud to support the community with new job opportunities, we are also excited to have this community support the fastest-growing segment of our business."

MorphoTrust's new office is co-located with an IdentoGO® Center by MorphoTrust – the enrollment center for TSA Pre✓™, TWIC and HTAP. The facility is located at 3501 Hollis Drive in Springfield.
