Prince George, BC – The Brink Group (‘Brink’) announced today that it has acquired Interior Warehousing Ltd. (‘Interior’), a leading distribution services company with nearly 150,000 square feet of commercial warehousing space in Prince George.
Interior’s 50-year reputation and innovative approach to business fits well with the Brink Group, which has embarked on an aggressive growth strategy in both its lumber manufacturing and real estate divisions. Over the past 10 years, Brink has made substantial investments to increase its lumber production capacity. Not only did it add production facilities to its plant in Prince George, but it also acquired a plant in Vanderhoof. Furthermore, Brink expanded its real estate arm by acquiring a real estate agency as well as developing a number of subdivisions in the area.
“My partners and I are very excited for Interior Warehousing to become a part of the Brink Group. I have known John Brink for many years and believe that this is positive news for both our employees and clients” said Don Engelsjord, speaking on behalf of the shareholders of Interior. Don has been an integral part of Interior Warehousing for the last 40 years and will continue with the company as the General Manager.
In business since 1968, Interior offers warehousing, transloading and trucking services. It has two warehouses in Prince George, one located on River Road, within close proximity to the Inland Port and the other located on Great Street. Both warehouses have access to rail line and are close to major highways.
“The acquisition of Interior Warehousing allows the Brink Group to become a key player in providing logistics and warehousing services in one of British Columbia’s most vital transportation hubs” said John A. Brink, Founder, President and CEO of the Brink Group. “There are tremendous opportunities for further innovation in the industry to better serve the logistical requirements of businesses in the region. Interior Warehousing has a history of making distribution by both rail and truck more effective and efficient”.
With its most recent acquisition, the Brink Group now proudly employs over 400 employees throughout Northern British Columbia. The Company intends to continue its growth trajectory with plans to further grow and expand in the area of logistics and warehousing.
“We at the Brink Group have been in operations for the past 43 years. We are delighted to have Interior Warehousing as one of our operations. We have confidence in its Management and Personnel to make this acquisition a great success” said John A. Brink.
