A&R Logistics Seeks Acquisitions
Mar 5 14
A&R Logistics, Inc. seeks acquisitions. A&R is also considering buying new liquid chemical trailers, the company primarily wants to expand by acquiring companies with annual revenues of between $25 million and $100 million. "Houston is the largest originating region for bulk liquid chemicals," Cheif Executive Officer Mark Holden said. "Houston is the chemical capital of the world, and that's where the majority of our customers are headquartered. These customers are encouraging us to expand into the liquid business." Smaller companies that A&R would like to acquire may be more willing than in previous years to enter into a deal because of new, stringent trucking regulations, Holden said. "We are seeing a number of family-owned businesses evaluating their options about continuing on or selling their company," he said. "The new regulations for trucking companies are more complicated and expensive for liquid transport. Our size and scale can benefit us. We can invest not only in technology to help address regulations, but we also can invest in people."
