Brad Archer, CEO Target Logistics: “We are proud to officially welcome Iron Horse Ranch to our team as part of our continued effort to build on our extensive network of turnkey workforce lodges in the United States. Iron Horse Ranch not only complements our existing footprint in the Permian Basin, but also shares our commitment to helping customers realize their full potential by providing a safe and comfortable environment away from the job site.”
