Paschall Truck Lines breaks ground on $8.2 million headquarters in Murray

Company to create 150 Full-Time jobs

MURRAY, Ky. — Paschall Truck Lines Inc., a nationally recognized truckload carrier based in Murray, broke ground on a new headquarters office in Calloway County, an $8.2 million investment that will create up to 150 full-time jobs.

PTL leadership broke ground on a 28,000-square-foot facility in the Murray West Industrial Park. The project is expected to create up to 150 office and administrative roles and will support the company’s customers, which include household names such as Procter & Gamble, Walmart, Home Depot and T.J. Maxx. Work on the project will begin immediately, with the new location expected to be operational by October 2023.

“Paschall Truck Lines Inc. has looked forward to building a new company headquarters on the north side of Murray for many years,” said Chuck Wilson, senior vice president and treasurer for PTL. “We appreciate the support of the City of Murray, the Murray-Calloway EDC and the Commonwealth of Kentucky, without which this project would not have been possible. As a 100% employee-owned company with many Murray and Western Kentucky-based employee-owners, we believe the new headquarters facility will serve the needs of the company, its employee-owners, our customers and Murray and the region for many years to come.”

PTL has roots in Murray dating back to its opening in 1937, originally operating as a less-than-truckload carrier with a single truck. The company has since grown into a national truckload carrier with more than 1,100 tractors, 3,200 trailers and over $260 million in annual revenue.

To encourage investment and job growth in the community, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) last month approved the company for up to $125,000 in tax incentives through the Kentucky Enterprise Initiative Act (KEIA). KEIA allows approved companies to recoup Kentucky sales and use tax on construction costs, building fixtures, equipment used in research and development and electronic processing.

In addition, the company can receive resources from Kentucky’s workforce service providers. These include no-cost recruitment and job placement services, reduced-cost customized training and job training incentives.
