A Wachovia Bank customer service call center in downtown Allentown is moving to Bethlehem, where it will be merged with an existing facility, according to company officials.

Wachovia spokesman Jim Baum said 450 employees are relocating from a call center at 265 Lehigh St. in Allentown to another Wachovia building 1015 Club Ave. in Bethlehem, about four miles away.

No one is losing their job as a result of the relocation, Baum said. The lease on the 71,266-square-foot Allentown facility is about to expire and the Bethlehem facility had room to absorb the Allentown workers. The move will happen in early 2011, he said.
