BlueGrace Logistics has announced that it will add jobs and approximately double its footprint in the Chicago Board of Trade.

The company will boost its downtown presence to 15,000 square feet from 8,000 square feet and will hoist that workforce to 150 employees from 40. BlueGrace will look to add young sales professionals, in particular.

“Chicago is rich with young, college-educated talent, and it is already an elite spot for professionals with deep expertise in the logistics industry,” BlueGrace CEO Bobby Harris said in a press release. “We couldn’t be more pleased with our central business district location.”

In all, BlueGrace has 500 employees and boasts more than 10,000 customers. Inc. 5000 has included it on its fastest growing companies list several times, and the company anticipates a 70% year-over-year revenue growth in 2018, according to the release.
