Fleet management solutions provider Omnitracs announced plans to relocate its corporate headquarters from San Diego to Dallas. The transition is scheduled to take place in early 2015 and will be supported by a grant from the Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF), the company said.
“Establishing Dallas as our new headquarters will further solidify our industry leadership position, allowing us to centralize operations and better serve our growing multi-national customer base,” said John Graham, CEO. “As a major transportation hub with a technology-savvy workforce, we believe Dallas offers great advantages that align with our long-term business vision. Our new headquarters location places us closer to many of our fleet customers to ensure we can quickly and efficiently meet their evolving mobile technology needs.”
Omnitracs has nearly 700 employees and includes business units Roadnet, Sylectus and FleetRisk Advisors. The company provides software-as-a-service-based solutions to more than 3,800 private and for-hire fleet customers and 500,000 vehicles around the globe.
“Employers of all sizes and from all industries know that Texas’ model of low taxes, smart regulations, fair courts and skilled workforce provide the best chance for their success now and well into the future,” said Texas Governor Rick Perry. “With a TEF investment of $3.9 million, Omnitracs is the latest employer to call Dallas home, creating hundreds of jobs in the area and pumping millions in capital into the local economy.”
Omnitracs’ expansion to Dallas will enable the company to capitalize on the region’s substantial transportation infrastructure and logistics expertise. The company will retain its locations in San Diego and Baltimore for continued market presence.
