Clermont County company adding jobs

John Kasich John Kasich
UNION TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

Ohio Governor. John Kasich was in Clermont County Thursday to make a jobs announcement at the Union Township headquarters for Total Quality Logistics.

TQL is a freight brokerage firm, matching shippers with carriers all over the county and is opening offices in several cities. Right now, TQL employs 1,000 workers and will double its size at the corporate headquarters when it builds another 100,000 square foot office building next to the current one in the Ivy Point Office Park.

Kasich says there is a lot of competition for companies like TQL so the state of Ohio and Union Township offered the company several million dollars in tax incentives to stay and grow.  Kasich says "This program itself and the incentives that we provided to this company is a return on investment positive for the taxpayer of the state in year one."

TQL also announced Thursday that it has reached $1 billion in sales for 2011, marking the first time the 14-year-old company has hit the billion-dollar milestone in a single calendar year.

"We look forward to additional growth in 2012 as more shippers and carriers become aware of our industry-leading service and our capacity to reliably handle a wide variety of load types," TQL Executive Vice President Kerry Byrne said.

TQL added 585 new jobs in 2011. Continued expansion of both the workforce and total number of satellite locations, which currently stands at 10, is planned as TQL serves an increasingly larger share of the full truckload domestic market. The company expects to create new job opportunities for an additional 1,000 employees over the next three years.

Headquartered in Cincinnati, TQL opened satellite offices in 2011 in Dayton and Columbus, OH, Louisville and Lexington, KY, Denver and Indianapolis. Other satellite offices are located in Charleston SC, Charlotte, Chicago, Tampa and Cleveland. TQL services cover freight shipments nationwide.
