Alliance buys in America

[ October 30, 2013   //   ]

Essex-based Alliance Group’s US arm, Alliance Pacific Corporation (APC) is to take over Houston-based Embassy Freight (There is no connection with the UK company of the same name). Embassy’s clients and services will be fully integrated into APC from 1 January 2014 and former chief executive officer, Steve Winters will head up the Group’s sales and marketing acivities at APC’s headquarters in Atlanta from the same date.

Alliance Group finder, Gary Waller, said: the two companies “share the same ethos, a multiplicity of trade lanes and in some areas even the same reciprocal agents.” The two companies’ shared buying power would also benefit clients, he added.

Mr Winters, like APC’s US head Simon Button, is a UK expatriate.

Mr Waller is forecasting growth of over $4 million in Atlanta next year and to triple over the next five years to 2018.
