StarTek (NYSE: SRT), a leading provider of business process outsourcing services, announced today the signing of a lease for a new contact center in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. The center is expected to open late in the third quarter of 2011.

“The addition of a center in Honduras was driven by client needs,” said Chad Carlson, StarTek’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We have experienced great success with our StarTek Costa Rica facility and went searching for another bilingual, educated population in a country with a stable democratic government which ultimately led us to Honduras. This further expansion into Latin America is consistent with our plans to continue to grow our global footprint.”

The center is located in the Altia Business Park in San Pedro Sula. The city of over 800,000 is home to seven institutions of higher learning and is the second largest city in Honduras.
