Sparks, NV (PRWEB) September 11, 2012
After two years of steady growth in the Reno-Sparks area, OnRamp Transportation Services – the premier transportation equipment leasing, sales, and contractor services company – is expanding their facility to accommodate increased demand for service, hiring a number of new employees and inviting customers and community leaders to participate in an Expansion and Customer Celebration Event.
OnRamp Transportation Services will be hosting its Expansion and Customer Celebration Event on Friday, September 14, 2012 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with catered food from MJ’s BBQ and Catering, raffles for iPads, big screen TVs and other prizes, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony with officials from the city of Sparks. Those interested in attending the Expansion and Customer Celebration Event are invited to find more information at http://onrampreno.eventbrite.com.
“We are excited that our Northern Nevada facility has done so well, and we credit our growth to the hard-working companies we get to work for in Nevada,” said Travis Johnson, Vice President of Operations for OnRamp Transportation Services. “Now, we get to give back by hiring locally and hosting what we hope will be a fantastic event.”
OnRamp anticipates that the Reno-Sparks area will have continued strong, long-term growth in the transportation industry. Johnson said that increased traffic along the I-80 corridor and the popularity of the Reno-Sparks area as a distribution hub for major U.S. retailers such as Amazon.com, Wal-Mart, Petsmart and others will continue to provide ample opportunities for companies that service the transportation industry.
“Our expansion is largely a result of the increase in demand we’ve seen, due to the resurgence of the transportation industry,” Johnson said. As a result, OnRamp is currently hiring positions in all areas, including management, technicians and administrative support.
