Velociti Expands Missouri Headquarters

Velociti, a transportation technology company, is expanding its Riverside, Mo., headquarters by 33,000 square feet.

The expansion will double the size of its headquarters to create new office space for new hires and will include a larger warehouse for inventory management as well as a fitness center and a cafeteria.

The company expects to move into the expanded space by mid-June 2017.

"Velociti truly is a full-service technology partner," Deryk Powell, Velociti president, said in a statement. "We not only install the systems; we test, design, manage and support these systems. What better way to illustrate that than through our own unique showcase facility?"

Since Jan. 1, the company has hired 17 additional office personnel: project managers, a system engineer, scheduling coordinators, a marketing coordinator, a marketing intern and warehouse assistants.

"Our goal was to create a space that reflects our appreciation for our employees, where they could collaborate and innovate," Powell said. "We have an incredible team, and they deserve a space that reflects the hard work and dedication they put in every day."
