Suddath buys Secor

Jan 19, 2016
The Suddath Companies, based in Jacksonville, Florida, has acquired The Secor Group, its largest acquisition to date. The Secor Group, from Washington DC, is one of the oldest logistics, moving and storage companies in the USA.

Both Suddath® and Secor share many inherent characteristics, including long histories of growth and success, and were major contributors to the development and standardisation of the modern-day moving industry. Both companies were founding members of van lines Atlas and Allied, respectively, international quality certification program FAIM (FIDI-Accredited International Mover) and the global network of relocation and moving specialists, OMNI (Overseas Moving Network International). Like Suddath, Secor also joined UniGroup, Inc. in the 1980s, holding company of United Van Lines and Mayflower Transit, of which Suddath is currently the largest agent.  

“Joining forces makes tremendous business sense,” said Michael J Brannigan, president and CEO of The Suddath Companies. “We are both history-rich, proudly rooted organisations that take moving personally each and every day whether its people, products or businesses. We are excited to build upon a shared tradition of service excellence and a winning spirit, as well as strengthen our operating position in key markets while adding scale to each of our product lines. This will be a great benefit to our customers and our team.”  

“Our service-first mentality and focus on innovation aligns perfectly with the approach and culture of The Suddath Companies,” said Chuck Lawrence, CEO, The Secor Group.  “The combined portfolio of services, knowledge, operational resources, technology platforms and partner networks will collectively equip us to better meet the ever-changing needs of clients around the world.”
