Old Dominion Completes Expansion to Indianapolis Service Center

INDIANAPOLIS (Oct. 10, 2012) – Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. today completed the expansion of its Indianapolis Service Center with a daylong celebration that included a rolling museum highlighting the company’s 78-year history.
      Old Dominion’s Indianapolis Service Center is one of the largest in company’s network and serves as the regional hub for the Midwest. Old Dominion invested millions to expand the Indianapolis Service Center to 325 doors and hired dozens of new employees in recent months.
      “We undertook this expansion of our center in Indianapolis because it is an important location within our nationwide network,” said David Congdon, Old Dominion’s president and CEO. “With this new facility, we will continue to grow our reach and to serve our customers by our commitment to premium service. We are able to continue our tremendous growth because of the hard work and dedication of every member of the Old Dominion family.”
      The rolling museum houses interactive displays, historical artifacts and scaled models in a custom-built trailer. The museum provides an inside look into the company’s 78-year legacy, which started with a single truck, is today one of the largest less-than-truckload motor carriers in the United States and employs more than 14,400 people globally.
      In addition to Congdon, Mark Fisher, interim president of Develop Indy; Troy Woodruff, chief of staff for Indiana Department of Transportation Commissioner Michael Cline; and Chad Pittman, executive vice president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, also spoke at today’s event.
