RENO, Nev. — April 6, 2016 — ITS Logistics, a fast-growing, industry-leading company headquartered in Sparks, has been honored as "Large Company of the Year" by The Chamber, the leading business organization in Reno, Sparks and Northern Nevada. The award, based on a nomination from a member of The Chamber, recognizes ITS Logistics for its outstanding business performance and support of community activities.
"The members of The Chamber have been our peers, our friends and our supporters as we have built our company," said Jeff Lynch, the chief executive officer of ITS Logistics. "We value their recognition of the work and the community support of our company and its community-minded employees."
ITS Logistics, which provides transportation, warehouse and fulfillment, and transportation-management and brokerage services, employs more than 550 people in Reno and Sparks. The company expects to add at least 100 employees as it expands its local operations and expands into national markets this year.
The company has won national recognition for its family-friendly culture as well as its use of innovative and cutting-edge technology to deliver strategic logistics services for its clients.
ITS Logistics also is a leading supporter of the community, providing assistance to organizations that range from the athletics programs of the University of Nevada, Reno, to the Sierra Regional Center Angel Tree program and numerous youth sports programs.
As it expands its northern Nevada operations, ITS Logistics is moving to a 630,000-square-foot facility at 555 Vista Blvd. in Sparks. The company is investing several million dollars to improve the facility, which increases its operating space in Northern Nevada by approximately 150,000 square feet.
Its transportation brokerage operations are headquartered in downtown Reno offices. The company also operates facilities in Southern California, the Seattle area and Phoenix.
The company was founded in 1999 by three Northern Nevada natives — and longtime friends — Jeff Lynch, Darryl Bader and Dan Allen. Lynch currently serves as its chief executive officer while Bader is its chief operating officer and Allen works as its chief financial officer.
The founders of ITS Logistics partnered in early 2015 with McNally Capital LLC a Chicago-based merchant bank, and Coughlin Capital, a family-held private investment group, which are providing financial support to enhance the growth of the Sparks-based company.
The "Large Business of the Year Award" was presented to ITS Logistics at a luncheon that drew several hundred members and guests of The Chamber on Wednesday, April 6.
