OnTrac opened the doors to the community at the Henderson facility on Thursday, April 7th, 2016. The event welcomed the City of Henderson officials and the Henderson Chamber of Commerce. Customers, partners, and employees joined OnTrac in the Grand Opening celebration at 551 Courier Street, Henderson, Nevada 89011.
OnTrac Corporate Account Manager Erin Metscher said about the event, "The Henderson Grand Opening event was great! It was wonderful to have not only some members of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce and the city attend, but also several of our customers, who are directly responsible for us opening this new facility."
Customers toured the facility with operations management and saw firsthand how their products are shipped to their customers. OnTrac Customer and Gizmo Gear Director of Sales and Marketing Bill Corey said, "OnTrac really helped me out of a jam with regard to shipping our Bottecchia Bicycles to western states. Better price and faster service. We now use OnTrac for all our packages in their service areas."
Following the facility tours, OnTrac General Manager Shawn Rush and Henderson resident of 10 years welcomed guests to the celebration. OnTrac Corporate Account Manager Erin Metscher introduced the City of Henderson Director of Economic Development and Tourism Barbra Coffee, who is responsible for the city's economic development strategy, which includes local business retention and expansion programs, business attraction, and small business and entrepreneurial development.
