RUD Fleet Corporation, a locally owned fleet services operation, is relocating and expanding in downtown High Point, North Carolina. RUD - Ready Upon Delivery - has chosen 209 N Main Street, the former Huffman Koos Building, for its corporate headquarters.
RUD Fleet's location choice will activate the building after five years of vacancy, immediately bringing 10 current High Point employees to downtown. Within three years, an additional 20 full-time office and professional roles will be added. To upfit the building from showroom to office use, investments to the property will exceed $250,000. Once completed, the new headquarters will present a modern aesthetic centered around collaboration and wellness.
On the location selection, company president Drew Haire said, "High Point's downtown is rapidly building momentum and offers a great opportunity for our growing team. We are excited to create an energized business environment that will benefit our team and community. We will leverage High Point's outstanding talent pool to become a spotlight for the city, bringing business professionals and visitors to work, dine and enjoy downtown."
Sandy Dunbeck, Director of High Point Economic Development Corporation and the 2021 Director for the Guilford County Economic Development Alliance, said, “We love to see local companies like RUD Fleet continue to grow in High Point. The downtown High Point office scene is experiencing quite a renaissance thanks to companies like RUD Fleet and Key Risk, who have chosen to locate their headquarters here, as well as through private redevelopment ventures like Congdon Yards, The Outfields, multiple projects by Peters Development, and investments by the extraordinary High Point University.”
