The company at a glance

By Times Staff Writer
Published January 23, 2005

JPMorgan Chase & Co. is a global financial services firm with assets of $1.1-trillion and operations in more than 50 countries. It traces its history to 1799 and represents a consolidation of companies over the years: J.P. Morgan, Chase Manhattan, Chemical Bank, Manufacturers Hanover, Bank One, First Chicago and National Bank of Detroit.

JPMorgan Chase and Bank One, the company it merged with last year, have more than 8,500 employees in Florida, about 5,000 of them in Tampa. Most of the Tampa employees, including 1,900 losing their jobs when the credit card call center closes later this year, work at the Fountain Square complex on Independence Parkway just west of Tampa International Airport. Also at Fountain Square are a mortgage service center, a retirement services group and an auto finance operation. A technology unit that handles everything from payroll transfers to electronic purchasing orders for corporate clients is at Highland Oaks, in eastern Hillsborough County near Interstate 75 and Martin Luther King Boulevard. A unit that handled mortgage telephone sales and loan processing was closed in 2003, and 235 employees lost their jobs.
