Western Express, Inc. announced plans to invest $88 million to expand its Nashville, Tenn., headquarters. The project is expected to create 225 jobs.

This expansion will add new technology, business services and back office support, as well as new trucks, trailers and GPS and other transportation-related equipment. Western Express will hire more than 350 driving associates each year over the next five years.

“This is an exciting time for Western Express. Our company is proud to be a part of the growth in Nashville. We opened our first terminal in Nashville in 1991. Our expansion has been through organic growth and acquisitions. We will continue to grow our fleet and our team. Our plan for 2019 will exceed $800 million in revenue. Western Express would like to thank the State of Tennessee for its support of our organization and the transportation industry,” says Paul Wieck, president and CEO.
