The group has further upped its global footprint

JF Hillebrand has acquired US drinks logistics firm Satellite for an undisclosed sum. 

Satellite Logistics Group, headquartered in Houston, Texas, will retain its name, management team and current employees under the deal, the companies said today (4 December). Satellite counts a number of brewers in North America, Latin America and Europe among its clients, as well as beverage companies. 

“This promises to be a valuable partnership for both JF Hillebrand and Satellite Logistics Group,” said Christophe Bernard, JF Hillebrand’s CEO. “Not only do we have complementary service offerings, but we find both organisations are culturally aligned, with a joint focus on service quality.”

In October, JF Hillebrand acquired Netherlands and Belgium operator Meerendonk Advanced Logistics.
