Saddle Creek Acquires ServiceCraft

Dec. 3, 2009
Saddle Creek has acquired ServiceCraft Logistics, increasing its warehousing capacity by 20%

Saddle Creek Corp., a Lakeland, Fla.-based provider of integrated warehousing, transportation, contract packaging and value-added services, has acquired ServiceCraft Logistics, a third-party logistics company (3PL) headquartered in Buena Park, Calif.

The deal provides Saddle Creek with an immediate increase in geographic coverage and industry expertise. “In ServiceCraft we found a company with a culture that is very similar to our own, and a service area that complements our existing network extremely well,” says David Lyons, Saddle Creek’s founder and chairman. “That cultural fit is already making for a smooth transition.”

With this acquisition, Saddle Creek gains eight warehouse locations in the key markets of Northern and Southern California and Dallas/Fort Worth and increases its total managed square footage by more than 20%. The move also expands Saddle Creek’s transportation offering. The company will now offer regional fleet transportation in the California markets in addition to its existing nationwide transportation brokerage service. Adding hundreds of new associates also enables Saddle Creek to expand its service offering with expertise in additional industries.
