Atlas World Group Inc., which is composed of a portfolio of companies that delivers transportation and related services globally through a network of agents and select service partners, announced plans to form a new leasing company, AWG Equipment Leasing Inc., to offer competitive financing to its agents and owner-operators. The company also announced plans to expand its Vanderburgh County, IN, headquarters and move its international relocation services to Evansville, IN, from Seattle, WA. With this growth, the company plans to add up to 75 new jobs in Indiana by the end of 2023.

The privately owned company will invest more than $1.1 million in relocation, software and equipment purchases for its 65,000-square-foot headquarters facility in Evansville. The company, which has been headquartered in southwest Indiana since 1960, anticipates its consolidation and expansion to be complete by 2023.

While the growth of its Evansville team will take place over the next five years, Atlas World Group, which currently employs 389 Evansville associates, is looking to immediately hire positions in administrative support and professional services.

“We have been in the Evansville community creating jobs for nearly 60 years, and we’re excited about this new chapter for Atlas,” said Jack Griffin, Chairman and CEO of Atlas World Group. “Our primary goal is to make it easier for people to relocate, and we know this expansion will be extremely beneficial in that effort.”

Atlas World Group operates nine subsidiaries and more than 430 agencies across North America. Additionally, the organization has authorized partners in 140 countries around the globe. The company has expertise in global relocation, moving, transportation and logistics.
