OnTrac was recognized as an Economic Development Project of the Year Award Finalist at the event. This award showcases an economic development project of significance completed within the last twelve months (by August 30, 2015.) Nominated projects demonstrate job creation, capital investment and economic impact to the community.

OnTrac opened the doors to its 130,000-square-foot facility at Courier Street in Henderson during the fall of 2015. A regional expansion of the company’s operations, the move tripled the size of OnTrac’s operations. The Henderson expansion alone resulted in the addition of more than 60 jobs, and the company now employs approximately 99 people.

Although this incredible project didn’t take the title this year, the reward of a nomination was a great success. OnTrac will continue to strive for greatness with innovative ideas and consistent growth.
