THOMASVILLE, N.C., Nov. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Old Dominion Freight Line rededicates its newly renovated corporate office today, with Gov. Pat McCrory commending the company for its commitment, growth and steady employment in North Carolina.
Old Dominion, which celebrated 80 years in business last year, has been headquartered in North Carolina since 1962, when it acquired and merged with Bottoms-Fiske Truck Line based in High Point.
"We are very proud to call Thomasville, N.C., the Piedmont Triad and this beautiful building our corporate home," said David Congdon, Vice Chairman and CEO, Old Dominion Freight Line. "While we've been at this location for many years, we celebrate a rededication today after nearly two years of renovations. The extensive improvements ensure the best work environment and efficiency for every member of the OD Family based here."
With the completion of the renovation at 500 Old Dominion Way in Thomasville, the company realizes a nearly 50 percent increase in work station capacity: 166,000 square feet in the two-story building. Space was optimized to create more work spaces, double the amount of conference areas and enhance our employees work environment.
"Our administration is committed to encouraging companies here in North Carolina to expand and thrive," Gov. McCrory said. "Old Dominion's commitment to North Carolina and investment in our state is a great sign of our improving business climate, strong economy and talented workforce."
In addition to remodeling the building, OD also upgraded its entire technology network nationwide. This substantial upgrade will allow the company and customers to gain efficiency, scalability, and flexibility.
Last year OD celebrated its 80th anniversary of "Helping the World Keep Promises." The company started with a single truck, and today is the fourth largest less-than-truckload motor carrier in the country.
In addition to its corporate office, OD operates 224 service centers nationwide. Each plays an integral role in the company's domestic freight network, providing complete coverage anywhere in the United States, in addition to direct service to Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico.
