A company that provides fleet management solutions for the U.S. trucking industry, Omnitracs LLC will invest $10 million to relocate its headquarters from San Diego, California to Dallas, Texas
, creating 450 jobs in the Lone Star State.
The company's services include software applications, GPS fleet tracking, platforms and information services. The new headquarters
will house jobs in a variety of fields, including engineering, research and development and finance.
"We are extremely pleased to be expanding our operations to Dallas and greatly appreciate the collaboration with and support from state and local officials in Texas," stated John Graham, CEO of Omnitracs. "Our new headquarters in downtown Dallas will situate us much closer to many of our fleet customers and provides convenient access by air to virtually all of our clients. This is an exciting time in the evolution of our growing business and we look forward to the many opportunities associated with this new location."
"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," Governor Rick Perry
said. "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." Governor Perry announced as an incentive the firm was awarded a Texas Enterprise Fund
investment of $3.9 million.
"We are thrilled to welcome Omnitracs to the growing list of technology companies choosing to make Dallas their home," said Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings. "Dallas is an ideal location for companies seeking a booming economic climate and a talented workforce, and we think Omnitracs will fit right in."
