BBI Expands Service For Vending Clients In Rocky Mountain Region, Acquires Barta Sales
Burdette Beckmann Inc. [BBI], a national sales agency that focuses on the consumer packaged goods industry, is pleased to announce the successful acquisition of Barta Sales effective May 1st, 2015. This seamless acquisition is an opportunity for BBI to consolidate its competitive landscape and continue to grow existing client representation in the Rocky Mountain region. “This is an exciting new chapter for Barta Sales,” said owner Tom Barta. “BBI provides its clients with the same level of service that Barta has always prided itself on, and I feel confident that our customers will be safe hands.” Tom will be assisting in the transition of his vending and food manufacturers’ Colorado market operations over to BBI’s national sales team.
All of Barta’s vending and food manufacturing clients will now be managed under Paul Van Vleck, Vending General Manager, and his robust team of sales professionals. “BBI continues to invest in this industry,” said Paul. “With this, our twenty-second successful acquisition, we have used our distinct competencies to provide best-in-class service for our clients in yet another region. We look forward to working with Tom Barta and expect to have a smooth transition.”
Barta Sales, also a family run business, was identified as opportunity for growth due to its similarity to BBI’s business and culture. Tom will continue to stay active at Barta Sales, focusing his efforts on their hot beverage clients.
