Allen Lund Co. expands staff in San Francisco Third-party transportation broker Allen Lund Co. plans to expand facilities and staff in 2015.

David Lund, vice president of sales and branch operations, said in a news release changes include transferring broker Alex Sakai from the Los Angeles refrigerated sales office to the San Francisco/San Mateo office.

“Recognizing the enormous potential in the region, Alex will join a strong operation and have an immediate impact there,” Lund said in the release from the company’s headquarters in La Cañada, Calif.

The San Francisco office opened in 1985 and has been managed by Bob Rose since 1998. He said growth in the customer base and customers’ growing businesses has created a need for additional staff.

“We have been adding several new employees and are looking to grow 25% or more in 2015,” Rose said in the release.
