Clearwater, Florida -- PODS Enterprises Inc. announced Tuesday it is expanding its headquarters to the Feather Sound Corporate Center in Pinellas County.
PODS says it has experienced tremendous growth and hired an additional 324 associates this year making the larger space necessary.
The company will soon occupy the entire third and fourth floors of the six-story Feather Sound Corporate Center. In addition to the expansion planned at the new facility in Feather Sound, PODS says its existing National Sales and Service Center at Rio Vista Drive in Pinellas will be upgraded to include expanded training facilities and space for even more growth.
"Our growth and our desire to provide a great place to work for our associates has driven our need for expansion," said John B. Koch, president and CEO, PODS Enterprises, Inc. "Moving our corporate headquarters into the larger location in Feather Sound also allows us to expand the size of our National Sales and Service Center at our current location. We are very excited about our relocation and are happy to be staying in Pinellas County."
The company says the project will create 40 jobs and $2.1 million in capital investment by 2016.
"PODS considered other locations like Georgia, but they liked what Florida had to offer," Florida's Governor Rick Scott said in a press release. "This is great news for Pinellas County and the state of Florida and we look forward to PODS continued growth in the Sunshine State."
