Zipline Logistics, one of central Ohio's fastest-growing companies last year, continues to expand, adding six new jobs since November and moving into a new headquarters building.

Zipline manages shipments for a number of large customers by employing trustworthy carriers to move loads of a truckload or less to clients across the country. The company reported revenues of $3.2 million in 2009, almost double that of 2008.

The company reports that receipts topped $4.4 million in 2010, and revenues are headed toward $10 million in 2011.

The company was founded in 2007 on the top floor of a Chinese restaurant. On April 15, it completed a move to new offices in Grandview Yard, tripling its office space to 3,600 square feet, says Melinda Zemper, a company spokeswoman.

"It's a great location for them because it's centrally located for the type of employees they are trying to attract -- college graduates who like to live in the city," she says.

The company continues to hire interns through a Columbus Chamber of Commerce program as a way to find and retain talent. In an interview with hiVelocity in November, Zipline Partner John Rodeheffer, noted that "retaining talent in Columbus is something that a lot of the business are working hard to do so that when students (leave college) they don't go to Chicago, they don't go to new York, they don't go to Miami, they stay in the area."
