Central Oregon Truck Company Breaks Ground on New Redmond Facility



Central Oregon Truck Company recently broke ground on its new consolidated headquarters in Redmond.

Rick Williams, president and CEO of the Central Oregon Truck Company, Inc. explained that their decision to build a new facility in Redmond instead of moving to Reno, Nevada, the alternative, was a complex decision. “Ultimately, what won out was the competitive package and affordable site presented by EDCO and REDI, the strong desire of the region to keep us here and our commitment to our local employees and their families,” Williams said. “Our roots are here and we’re proud to invest in the growth of Central Oregon’s regional economy.

SunWest Builders has been selected as the general contractor.

The new building will bring together the company’s trucking operations and administration into one consolidated headquarters’ facility in Redmond. Williams added, “A consolidated operation will help us better communicate as a company, provide a catalyst to teamwork and help strengthen the bond between the company’s leadership, office, maintenance and trucking personnel. We believe this will enhance and make more efficient the delivery of transportation services to Oregon and the other 47 states in which we operate.

“While US 97 isn’t a major interstate, it is a major transportation artery, benefiting many Central Oregon companies by keeping one of the largest flat bed logistic companies in the state.”
