The parcel delivery company opened its doors to Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny and key members of the City Council and Chandler Chamber of Commerce to share in the celebration.
"This is our brand new home," OnTrac President Rob Humphrey said. "We are very excited to show off our new corporate home in Chandler. We are very proud of what we've got here, and we're already starting to see some of the benefits we thought we'd see by moving to Chandler as we start to hire and bring in new talent. It's a very exciting time for our company."
Chandler's central location and quick access to the interstate and freeways make it an excellent choice for businesses, like OnTrac, that have a diverse workforce.
OnTrac's new home provides the company with additional space and the opportunity for future growth. The new headquarters will also allow for new employee amenities including a game room, employee lounges, and a modernized break room. The company will occupy 65,000 square feet of space in the building, with an option to expand.
"This is a pretty amazing thing, when you think of the transformation of this facility, and we're obviously very happy and glad to be here today," Tibshraeny said at the opening. "Rob's vision with his company, to bring it into Chandler, is really good. We're happy to be here for the opening and we're looking forward to those deliveries. Let's make it happen."
OnTrac relocated its Corporate Headquarters from Phoenix to Chandler in September of 2013. The company brings more than 200 employees into the city's economy and expects to expand that number to 850 over the course of its 11-year lease.
