TRG Officially Opens New Company Headquarters in Montana

Share Article

TRG has officially opened its new Southwestern Montana location. After years of planning, this location will now serve as company headquarters. This expansion includes all Customs Bond, Marine Insurance and Direct Filing divisions.

After 18 years providing import solutions from Barrington, Illinois, TRG has expanded to Bozeman, Montana. November 9th marked the official opening of the new office, which will now serve as the company’s headquarters. All departments have been centralized to this location. In 2005, the President and managing partner, John Michel, expanded to Montana in a smaller town south of Bozeman. After years of rapid growth, the company found the need to increase staff and set its sights on Bozeman.

TRG’s business is focused on U.S. Customs bond, Marine Cargo Insurance and self-filing, which some might say is an odd combination for sales out of Montana. However, the company’s direct marketing approach over the years has shown that sales, if done properly, can be accomplished from any remote location. TRG caters to U.S. and Canadian importers of all sizes and in all locations. Even though few customers are actually found in Montana, the company has been able to bring a wealth of education to local U.S. importers.

TRG Bond, the division specializing in U.S. Customs bonds, has placed key staff members in Montana to help facilitate sales and customer service. “Having the ability to speak face to face with our Customs bond underwriters, Claims Department, and sales executives has increased productivity and the effectiveness of internal communication,” Courtney Larson, Customs Bond Administrator, said about the move.

TRG Marine Insurance will soon follow suit as Sales, Marketing and Administration will be settled into the Montana office by the first of the year. “We are expecting TRG Marine Insurance to transition into a leading product role in 2010, as our ability to present a more cohesive sales approach improves,” Gregg Cummings, National Sales Manager said. “TRG Marine’s manager’s placement in the Bozeman office will play a vital role in the development of this product.”

The Illinois office will still play an important role for TRG Direct, the web-based system for entry filing and Importer Security Filing. Members of the accounting department and direct filing customer service remain in Barrington where they share an office with TRG’s sister company, Corporation for International Business.
