has expanded from 100 employees to 800 in the 10 years it has been located in Irving. Since opening in 2004, Prime’s mail-service pharmacy and contact center operations in Irving have continued to expand its workforce, increase the amount of space it leases, and adopt new technology to enhance and streamline operations, Eric Elliott, Prime’s CEO, told me in an interview today.
