NASHVILLE—Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd along with Total Quality Logistics (TQL) officials today announced the transportation services company will expand its operations in Tennessee by opening a new location in Knox County. The company will invest $1 million to open a sales office in downtown Knoxville to meet the needs of its expanding client-base, creating at least 100 new jobs over the next five years.
This is TQL’s second expansion in Tennessee in just over a year. In January 2014, TQL invested $1 million to open its first Tennessee office in downtown Nashville, committing to create 105 new jobs by the end of 2016. The Nashville office already employs nearly 60.
“I couldn’t be more excited to see Total Quality Logistics expanding once again in Tennessee,” Boyd said. “TQL chose to open its first Tennessee location in Nashville in January 2014, citing outstanding professional talent, so their decision to locate in Knoxville is a real testament to our high quality workforce and the growth opportunities that come along with passionate and talented team members.”
