LARGO — Las Vegas-based Quantum Energy Holdings plans to close its call center and offices on Ulmerton Road and lay off more than 100 employees on April 10.

“The reason for the closure is strategic business alignment,” Quantum vice president for corporate affairs Laura Zepeda wrote in a layoff notice to the city of Largo and state of Florida. She did not respond to a Tampa Bay Times message requesting further information about the company.

The company, which does business as Executive Energy Management, operates four subsidiaries that provide sales, telemarketing, support services and customer service for utilities and energy-related brands out of the Starkey Lakes Corporate Center at 8550 Ulmerton Road:

• EnergyCare, where 60 of 73 people are being laid off work as customer service representatives.

• Utilities Sales Management, where 14 layoffs include several software and technology positions as well as jobs in accounting, payroll and finance.

• Utilities Marketing Group, with 11 layoffs, seven of them customer service representatives.

• Sales Verification Company, which has 14 employees, 10 who will be retained but will work from home or another location after the office closes.
