Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2007
Casto Travel, Inc. has completed the acquisition of Archer Travel, a leisure travel agency based in Rancho Cordova, California. The acquisition will strengthen Casto's Vacation division and expand their operations into the surging Sacramento travel market.
"The decision to acquire Archer Travel was fairly simple - they held the same ethic of exceptional customer service we have held since being founded in 1974," said Marc Casto, President and COO of Casto. "Our position in the Bay Area is strong, with offices in Santa Clara, San Francisco, Tiburon, and Kentfield. Expanding into Sacramento was a natural evolution."
"Casto presented us with an opportunity to service our clients in a way not possible as an independent agency," said Sandra Archer, owner of Archer Travel. "We now have access to Casto's luxury consortium, preferred rates with their vendors, and direct visa and passport processing. It was really a win-win situation."
Casto is currently in the process of reviewing additional acquisition opportunities and is actively recruiting employees in Sacramento and beyond.
Headquartered in Santa Clara, California, Casto is the largest full-service, privately owned travel management company in Northern California with global sales in excess of $135 million. We provide corporate, concierge, vacation, and group travel management services in addition to full service visa and passport processing. Casto is a global company with 200 employees located in offices throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento, as well as offices in Manila, Rapid City, SD.
