Teleconnect, the latest firm to enter Utah's long distance telephone market, has opened a sales office in the Woodlands Business Park, 4001 S. Seventh East.

The company will market its long distance phone service to Utah businesses, said Utah Regional Account Manager Tad Jones. Commerce Properties, which helped Teleconnect locate in Utah, said the long distance company signed a three-year lease for its office space.

Teleconnect, headquartered in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, has opened 24 sales offices around the country annually for the last three years.

In addition to long distance service, the firm offers telemarketing, directory publishing and telephone systems.
