A freight line company that has been in La Feria for nearly 20 years has pumped millions of dollars into its facility to better serve its customers.

The North Carolina-based Old Dominion Freight Line invested $6.6 million to upgrade its office and to expand its shipping and receiving ramps that went from 20 doors to 34 today.

On Thursday, June 20, company officials from the center here and from Dallas were in the La Feria service center for an open house to show off the improved facility on Solis Road.

Johnny Stricklin, the company’s vice president for the Gulf Coast Region, said upgrading the facility was long overdue.

“We have been wanting to do this for some time,” he said, in reference to the improvement project. “The border area has been growing a lot and we needed to expand our operations here.”

Diana Naranjo, manager for sales and service, said the center here is known as Old Dominion BRO Service Center.

ODFL has 233 service centers throughout the country, 20 of which are in Texas.

ODFL provides jobs to close to 40 people in this area.

The open house was held to mark the completion of the project and to thank the company employees for the work they do.

They and their families were treated to a BBQ lunch and cake as a token of appreciation.
