Batory Foods (Rosemont, IL) has announced the acquisition of Tri-State Companies, an Ohio-based food ingredients broker, distributor, and logistics provider. With the addition of Tri-State’s 100,000 square-foot, multi-temperature zone distribution center, the acquisition transforms Batory’s service offerings in the Northeast, Midwest, and Southwest. For example, the Tri-State facility’s cutting edge cold storage will guarantee the safekeeping of temperature sensitive inventory, and the new warehouse location will streamline deliveries and reduce shipping times to Batory customers.
“We are thrilled to complete this strategic acquisition – one that will significantly enhance our logistical efficiencies in the Northeast, Midwest and Southeast and give us greater capacity to provide consistent and reliable customer service and optimized distribution to our valued customers,” said Vince Pinneri, president of Batory Foods, in a press release. “We look forward to joining forces with Tri-State Companies and moving forward with further confidence and capabilities as a top-tier, nationwide distributor of food and beverage ingredients.”
“Becoming part of a multi-faceted organization like Batory Foods signifies a historic and exciting milestone for Tri-State Companies,” said Lloyd Makstell, owner of Tri-State Companies. “Through this acquisition we look forward to continuing to offer the highest quality ingredients, while together, forming a stronger business, driving further growth and innovation and creating even more value for our employees and customers.”
