The worldwide web is bringing another 200 jobs to Prescott Valley.

Wednesday at a Fain Signature Group press conference, GlobalTranz announced it is opening a second office, in Fain's Prescott Valley building, that will add five new employees every other week for the next 18 months.

"I see within two years we'll have 200 more employees," said Mark Erickson, vice president of telemarketing sales.

GlobalTranz, an online-driven freight booking service, currently operates an office at Navajo and Hwy 69 with 23 employees. The company, a subsidiary of the 22-year-old family-owned Phoenix shipping company Logistics Freight Systems, opened its Prescott Valley office two-and-a-half years ago with four people.

"We develop the website that allows customers to ship their freight," Erickson explained. He noted that according to Inc. 500, GlobalTranz is the second-fastest privately held company in Arizona. It currently ranks at 175 and he said he expects to it break the top 100 this year.

As the employee ranks grow, Erickson said the plan is to expand into the entire 15,000-square-feet downstairs of the Fain Signature Group building, from the 6,000-square-feet it soon will occupy.

Employees will call businesses with high shipping volumes to alert them to the free online service GlobalTranz offers. Erickson said employment is salary and commission-based, and involves entry level sales that can lead to future management positions.

"We're looking for energetic, motivated people," he said. "We like to promote from within."

Because GlobalTranz helps businesses reduce shipping costs, Erickson calls it "the Travelocity of the shipping industry."

THIS is the kind of jobs and business Prescott Valley needs. Not prisons. There is business out there, and there is economic development to do. Don't ever bring us a prison proposal again. It's our town. If it's your town, you should understand.
