The origins of Loomis, Fargo & Co. date back to 1852, to those exciting days when Pony Express riders helped build the American west, as well as the Alaska Gold Rush era, when armed mushers endured danger and hardship to provide safe transport into and out of the mines. The founding fathers of our predecessor companies met and tamed the challenges of their respective frontiers. You may be familiar with some of the famous names from our history: Buffalo Bill Cody, Wyatt Earp, Wild Bill Hickok, Bret Harte and of course Lee Loomis, William Fargo and Henry Wells. We are very proud of our heritage, but we are even more excited about our present and future.
Today, Loomis is the U.S. leader in the cash handling services industry. Think of us as the nation’s largest integrated cash distribution network. Loomis operates an electronically linked service network of nearly 240 operating locations throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico, employs over 8,000 teammates and utilizes a fleet of approximately 3,000 armored and other vehicles to provide secure armored transport, automated teller machine (ATM) services, cash and transaction processing services for banks, other financial institutions, commercial, industrial and retail businesses.
Just as the pioneers who settled the American west and the Alaska frontier depended on us for secure, reliable transport, today’s business community counts on Loomis for comprehensive cash handling solutions. With a broad range of services, nationwide coverage and thoughtful application of technology, we offer opportunities to achieve savings and reduce risk by considering the full cash distribution system cycle rather than individual segments. For our customers, it is the seamless integration of cash processing, transportation, eBusiness innovation and management that creates exceptional value.
