Westlake, OhioTechnology Recovery Group, a TruWest Co., plans to relocate its distribution warehouse for retail-based operations to 1006 Crocker Road in Westlake, a suburb located 12 miles west of downtown Cleveland. TRG is the leading hardware solutions provider in the mobile computing and barcode printing industry and is currently headquartered at 31390 Viking Parkway in Westlake. The company will utilize the new space for distribution and retail rollouts amidst consistent growth.

The current 80,000-square-foot world headquarters that TRG moved into in 2014 was originally intended to last at least 10 years. However, as TRG has seen a 30 percent growth rate in the past decade, a larger footprint was needed to accommodate the company. Although TRG was already planning the development of a 30,000-square-foot office on Lake Road in Rocky River, Ohio, customer growth outpaced construction. The new building was originally slated to open in late 2017, but so far no set date for completion has been finalized.

In the new warehouse, dozens of employees will handle barcode scanners, printers, RFID equipment, cash registers and other point-of-sale devices from assembly through staging to configuration and deployment to retail stores.

“Our retail operations division has grown so rapidly in 2016 that we’ve completely run out of space for retail packing, staging and rollouts. This new expansion will allow us to fulfill all of our customers’ needs more quickly and it provides us with the option to expand in the future,” said Dave Foyer, TRG’s vice president of operations and retail services, in prepared remarks.

TRG’s international division, TRG Global, is based in Nijmegen in the Netherlands, and handles repairs and services throughout the European Union. In addition to its European Division, TRG has service centers in Cincinnati and Toronto.
