The Suddath Companies – a Jacksonville, Fla.-based provider of diversified transportation and relocation service offerings – announced its second acquisition of 2011: City Moving Systems Inc., based in Kent, Wash. Suddath says the acquisition, terms of which were not released, creates a $350 million corporation with more than 1,700 employees and 19 nationwide locations.
With City, Suddath says it has expanded to include an office in greater Seattle and now has a presence in all quadrants coast-to-coast. “We have added a well-established presence in the upper Northwest, which will expand our footprint and increase service capabilities for our customers,” said Barry Vaughn, chief executive officer of The Suddath Companies. “I am most enthusiastic about bringing these two storied and highly reputable cultures together.”
Suddath acquired Midwest-based Barrett Moving and Storage in January. “We are proud to become part of The Suddath Companies, where delivering the best in customer service holds the same importance that it has for City,” said Donna Hyatt, City president. “We know that we will continue a 105-year legacy of quality and innovation as part of this great new company.”
