TAMPA — Ohio-based Integrity Express Logistics plans to hire 50 people as the young transportation company grows its satellite office here, Gov. Rick Scott said Monday.
The company, founded in 2007, acts as a middleman in the shipping industry, connecting businesses and truckers. It already has a staff of 25 in its office at 4902 Eisenhower Blvd. S, and it plans to focus its hiring on sales and day-to-day operations, said co-founder Pete Ventura.
Integrity Express Logistics will receive $150,000 in state and local incentives if it hires 50 people by 2018. Its agreement with the state requires that those jobs pay better than the state's median salary.
The new jobs in Tampa will average starting pay in the mid-$40,000 range, Ventura said, but commissions on sales could boost employees' pay into six figures. The company has begun hiring for some of the new positions.
Integrity Express Logistics employs about 180 people, mostly in its headquarters near Cincinnati, and boasts 5,000 customers.
