KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - July 2, 2021 - PRLog -- Axle Logistics new headquarters is officially open, representing a $13 million investment that helps stretch downtown to the north. The 1920 era building, originally a car dealership, is now a state-of-the-art logistics headquarters from which the movement of goods is coordinated across the U.S. as well as in Canada and Mexico.

"The new facility has helped our team with renewed energy," said Axle Logistics cofounder Jon Clay. "Just as importantly, it has helped us recruit. We've added 70 new positions already this year."

Cofounder Drew Johnson put it this way: "The new space and the amenities it offers us creates the proper setting for our growing team. It fits our culture perfectly"

The project earned a 15-year Payment In Lieu of Taxes (PILOT) incentive from both the City of Knoxville and Knox County. It was also approved by the Industrial Development Board.

"We appreciate Axle Logistics selecting Knoxville, creating jobs here, and adding to the vibrancy of our city and our neighborhoods," Knoxville Mayor Indya Kincannon said. "It's an added bonus that Axle shares our love of historic places and has brought back into reuse a century-old building that has long sat vacant."

"Knox County is a great place to live, work, and raise a family," said Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs. "Axle Logistics saw that when they chose to open their new headquarters here and I know they will help us prove that to the many qualified logistics students graduating from the state's flagship university. I hope their success and growth continue."

With an eye to the future, Axle has already purchased an adjoining building.

Axle Logistics is a growing Knoxville company with a focus on providing safe, reliable, advanced logistics services. That includes truckload, less than truckload (LTL), intermodal, and warehousing to customers throughout the continental U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

Axle has been repeatedly named to the Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies list and has been recognized as both a Top Workplace and a Top Freight Brokerage firm.

The new headquarters project was managed by Conversion Properties, was designed by Design Innovation Architects, and built by Denark Construction.
