Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) October 09, 2013
Ahern & Associates have closed the chapter on yet another strong quarter and are looking forward to ending 2013 with a record year behind them. Unlike business brokers and investment banks which have little industry focus Ahern and Associates has carved a niche for itself as America’s number 1 transportation consulting business and so far 2013 has rewarded that dedication.
The trucking industry has been struggling to adapt to rising fuel costs and regulations this past quarter and this has meant that there has been more of a demand than ever for the industry savvy and expertise represented by Ahern and Associates. Ahern & Associates were pleased to have recently assisted with two high-profile projects with both PGT Trucking Inc. and Bennett International, two well-known industry names who sought to expand and consolidate their market position.
Ahern lent their expertise and resources to help PGT Trucking, one of the top flatbed carriers in the country, with the asset purchase of Liedtka Trucking, a specialized hauling company based in Trenton, New Jersey. Ahern & Associates have also helped Bennett International with the asset purchase of Ace Doran, a family-owned transportation company based in Cincinnati, Ohio, which was the largest acquisition ever for Bennett International since their founding. Additionally, Ahern assisted two other clients with the purchase of two freight brokers.
The 4th quarter shows no signs of a slowdown in the demand for Ahern & Associates’ unique service as 11 more requests for acquisition support have already been announced. In addition to their acquisition support arm, Ahern & Associates internal business review and mentoring programs have also seen increased interest from clients. Since their launch, they have been receiving consistent accolades from their industry clients who have found in their work with Ahern and Associates the road to bettering their operating margins, expanding their operating footprint, and furthering their local influence.
