Menzies continues shopping spree
In UK, Menzies Distribution has acquired JBT, a Scottish logistics and supply chain services company with an annual turnover of GBP 23 million.
With the takeover, Menzies adds 200 vehicles and six operating sites to its network. Based in Bathgate, West Lothian, with further depots in Aberdeen, Inverness, East Kilbride, Lerwick (Shetland) and Kirkwall (Orkney), JBT increases Menzies’ geographical reach across Scotland.
JBT provides services in a number of sectors, including retail, healthcare (with a notable specialism in temperature controlled logistics), packaging and parcel home delivery.
Endless, a private equity investor, acquired Menzies Distribution as part of the business’s separation from John Menzies in September 2018. (sh)
