RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - The Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN) has announced that rfxcel, a provider of track and trace solutions, is relocating its corporate headquarters to Reno.

The new office is expected to open its doors in December 2018. It will serve as rfxcel's main headquarters, as well as its research and development and back-office operations center. The company plans to hire up to 200 employees over the next several years.

EDAWN says rfxcel's track and trace technology "optimizes supply chain operations with Serialization Software, Regulatory Compliance Management, Supply Chain Visibility Software, and Internet of Things (IoT) Environmental Monitoring. Their software also enables products and goods manufactured domestically and abroad to reach consumers without the threat of contamination, adulteration, or diversion."

rfxcel's products also are designed to help companies comply with regulations such as the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), which regulates the conditions in which foods are grown, harvested, and processed; and the U.S. Drug Supply Chain Act, which requires total end-to-end supply chain visibility into the prescription medications sold in the U.S.

"We recently reached a major milestone celebrating rfxcel's 15-year anniversary. We intend to be in business for many years to come. That is why we chose Reno. Reno is one of the fastest growing hubs for technology in the country and is conducive to company growth. We will hire in many areas including software engineering, technical support, professional services, sales and marketing, accounting, human resources, training and development, and legal. We are also exploring opportunities with several government agencies and intend to base our future government contract management staff in our Reno facility," says Glenn Abood, rfxcel CEO and Co-Founder.

EDAWN says rfxcel's platform of solutions and services will provide Reno residents jobs supporting a U.S. based international company that has continued to grow year over year since its founding 15 years ago. rfxcel will "leverage Nevada's growing technology resource pool, which is experiencing the 2nd highest growth rate in the country."

"The Reno City Council and I would like to extend a Biggest Little City welcome to Mr. Abood and the truly talented and innovative team at rfxcel," Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve says. "Companies like rfxcel are creating the future right here in Reno. This is another win for our entire region as we continue to transform into a progressive and vibrant technology hub."

"We are excited that rfxcel has selected Reno for their new operations and corporate headquarters adding to the continued emergence of tech companies in our region," says Mike Kazmierski, President & CEO of EDAWN. "The company's reputation as one of the world's leaders in "track and trace" technology is also proof that well-established companies like rfxcel continue to embrace the opportunities found in Nevada to help them grow their business."
