April 19, 2017 — SIRVA Inc., an industry-leading global relocation and moving services provider, announced it is relocating its Fort Wayne, IN office which houses its moving operations for its Allied and NorthAmerican van line brands.
SIRVA signed a lease to occupy 63,000 square feet of office space on six floors in the Indiana Michigan Power Center at 110 East Wayne Street in downtown Fort Wayne and plans to relocate to the space in October 2017. SIRVA’s move is another sign of the economic revitalization and resurgence in downtown Fort Wayne.
The move is part of a company-wide initiative to upgrade key office locations to enhance the experience of employees, van line agents and client companies. The Fort Wayne office is home to approximately 400 employees servicing the moving business.
“This new, modern setting includes accessibility to amenities that will benefit current employees and customers and position us to attract top talent drawn to the overall revitalization of Northeast Indiana,” said Andrew Coolidge, President of International Moving and Chief Supply Chain and Operational Excellence Officer for SIRVA. “For over 40 years, SIRVA has been a part of the Fort Wayne community. We’d like to thank the City of Fort Wayne and Greater Fort Wayne, Inc. as they worked diligently on our behalf to help find a location that met our current and future needs, inviting us to be part of an exciting opportunity to help accelerate the creation of a new downtown.”
“I continue to be encouraged by the momentum and private investments we’re experiencing in Fort Wayne,” said Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry. “We’re appreciative of SIRVA’s commitment to our community and their relocation to the heart of Fort Wayne. Job growth and economic development opportunities are making our City and region a point of destination.”
The new location is about six miles from the current facility. It is centrally located to many amenities including gyms, restaurants, hotels and meeting space and features garage parking with a covered walkway to the building.
SIRVA’s moving operations has occupied the office facility at 5001 US Highway 30 West since 1978. “Rather than remodel our current facility, leasing a new facility will enable us to more efficiently manage fixed costs and prioritize funds to align with our growth goals,” said Coolidge.
