OnTrac was recognized as an Economic Development Project of the Year Award Finalist at the event.

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.

Customers toured the facility with operations management and saw firsthand how their products are shipped to their customers.

OnTrac Opens Facility in Henderson, NV

Posted on Oct 20, 2015 6:00:00 AM

OnTrac is moving its Las Vegas facility to Henderson, Nevada. The new Henderson facility triples the size of the former Las Vegas facility, increasing from 42,000 square feet to 130,000 square feet.  The additional square feet are required due to the company’s growth in the Southern Nevada market.

The new facility will have a material handling system that will provide greater warehouse and delivery efficiencies. In addition, the Henderson facility has six unload and 14 load dock doors that will allow additional truck loads to move more efficiently in and out of the facility. The former Las Vegas facility only had four dock doors total. Las Vegas General Manager Shawn Rush said, “It’s a very exciting time to be at OnTrac. The facility move to Henderson will allow for service improvements and efficiencies while creating a better work environment for all employees. Plus the growth in Nevada alone will allow for OnTrac to expand upon our services while providing employment opportunities for the Henderson community.”

OnTrac may be hiring new employees to fill the facility. Currently at the Las Vegas facility there are 63 employees, while dispatching 61 service providers. The facility is located at 551 Courier Street, Henderson, Nevada 89011.

OnTrac is excited for the growth potential and the ability to get involved with the Henderson community. A member of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce, OnTrac looks forward to supporting local business as well. Henderson Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Scott Muelrath said, “With over 20 years’ experience in the industry, OnTrac is a welcome addition to the Southern Nevada business community for competitive pricing and proven delivery service.  Welcome to Henderson OnTrac!”
