The Buffalo News reports that Bank of America plans to shut down its 130,000-square-foot facility in Getzville, N.Y., by May 31. The facility currently employs about 1,200 workers, and Bank of America will keep about 100 people on its payroll. M&T Bank Corp. will take control of the lease for the facility and plans to hire about 600 of the Bank of America employees.

A Bank of America spokesperson says that the facility is closing because the company has fewer borrowers requiring assistance with their mortgages.
