Boasso Global, a company that provides depot, maintenance, cleaning and transportation services for the ISO tank container industry, cut the ribbon on its new Water Street Tampa headquarters on Jan. 11.
ISO tanks are 20-foot, 6,000-gallon cylindrical containers used for shipping bulk liquids and foodstuffs, ranging from whiskey, beer, wine and cooking oils to water treatment products and automotive lubricants. According to a news release, the Boasso Global executives presented a scale model of an ISO tank to Tampa Mayor Jane Castor, who attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Boasso Global, the release states, has more than 1,600 employees worldwide and provides logistics services to global chemical and food-grade supply chains via a network of 35 depots located throughout North America, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, France and Spain. Its new 12,500-square-foot headquarters, located at 615 Channelside Drive, adjacent to Sparkman Wharf, will house the company’s accounting, finance, legal, human resources, IT and marketing teams.
“Boasso Global is a global, port-based business, so having Sparkman Wharf as our new headquarters location not only personifies who we are but has the added benefit of being an exciting central location in Tampa surrounded by restaurants, stores and special event venues,” Boasso Global Chairman & CEO Joe Troy states in the release. “As Tampa continues to grow, it offers us a tremendous quality of life and access to talented, diverse, and highly educated employees.”
