Evansville-based Atlas World Group Inc. has announced plans to expand its headquarters. The transportation company will move its international relocation services to Evansville from Seattle, while forming a new leasing company, AWG Equipment Leasing Inc., to offer financing to its agents and owner-operators. Plans call for the company to add up to 75 new jobs by the end of 2023.
"To take our economy to the next level, we need to keep attracting companies like Atlas World Group to locate and grow in Indiana," said Governor Eric J. Holcomb. "We are grateful for their commitment and we’ll continue to do our part to build on this momentum by sustaining our pro-business climate and show businesses large and small why Indiana is the best state to live, work, grow, play and stay."
The company plans to invest over $1.1 million in relocation, software and equipment purchases for its 65,000 square-foot facility. Company officials expect to begin immediately hiring administrative support and professional services positions, to add to the current 389 Evansville associates. The consolidation and expansion are expected to be complete by 2023.
