Tucson, AZ – February 25, 2009 – SPExpress, an Arizona based shipping and logistics company, announced today that they have acquired certain assets of Horizon Distribution Logistics (www.horizondist.com). Horizon Distribution Logistics, based in Phoenix, Arizona, provides commercial warehousing and distribution services primarily for the furniture, hospitality and construction industries. At year-end 2008, Horizon made a strategic decision to narrow the scope of their business by focusing on their core competencies. In doing so, Horizon elected to sell certain assets associated with their order fulfillment business and transition a number of their current customers to SPExpress.
“We are excited about the opportunity to work with Horizon in smoothly and seamlessly transitioning their order fulfillment business to SPExpress,” stated SPExpress CEO Mich Bayley, “in addition, we have been looking to expand our 3PL capabilities and see the WMS system acquired from Horizon and developed by Zethcon (www.zethcon.com) as an important development in further expanding our range of capabilities for our current customers. Furthermore, we believe that we can deliver additional value and expertise to Horizon’s current customers by offering them access to some of our proprietary shipping and transportation programs.”
The Horizon Distribution Logistics order fulfillment business will be integrated into SPExpress’ current Phoenix based operations.
“While it was a difficult decision to make, I am confident that SPExpress will do a fine job of continuing to provide outstanding service for our customers,” said Horizon President Bruce Dusenberry. Mr. Bayley may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 866.773.7363 and Mr. Dusenberry may be reached at email@example.com or 520.747.1505.
