BBI Expands Northwest Region
BBI entered into an agreement for the purchase of regional firm, S&L Brokerage located in Vancouver, WA.
Robert Taylor said, "We've been hoping to expand our operations in the Northwest for a while now, and when this opportunity came around, it was the perfect scenario. John Dougher, S&L's owner, has done an excellent job of building the business, and we are looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish with him and his team."
"S&L's strength in seasonal and bulk candy offerings was attractive to us," said John Ripley, General Manager-Retail NW. "Their team has demonstrated both skill and industry experience, and we look forward to integrating them with our current representatives. I am confident they will be able to contribute new ideas and customers that will only bolster our presence in the region."
The addition of S&L's Brokerage increases BBI's presence in the Northwest region allowing them to cover more accounts and offer a larger portfolio of goods to customers. S&L's Vancouver office will remain open, and business will continue as usual for S&L clients.
The agreement went into effect December 31st, 2015.
