Allen Lund Company Announces the Acquisition of Magic Valley Truck Brokers
LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE, CA - Allen Lund Company is kicking off a milestone year with an equally sizable boom in the logistics arena, having just acquired Idaho-based Magic Valley Truck Brokers.
"From the moment I walked in the door to greet the Boise team for the first time, I knew instantly that we had made a great decision. From their company culture to their work ethic and grit, to their customer and carrier mix, their operation, and their family at the root of it all, we line up so well and share so much in common. I'm proud to call Magic Valley Truck Brokers our newest Allen Lund Company office, and I'm so excited to see what the future brings,” Tracey Lewin, VP of Sales and Operations for ALC, stated.
Magic Valley Truck Brokers, Inc., a family-owned business, started as a dream for Gus and Millie Blaser in Twin Falls, Idaho in 1955.
"My parents always said, ‘don't work just for today, work hard for tomorrow and think long-term— then you will always have a job and a good name.’ So, when Allen Lund Company, Eddie, and David approached us, this seemed like a perfect fit," said Wes Blaser, President of Magic Valley Truck Brokers.
Wes and his sister Debbie purchased the company in 1996, according to a press release, and he has since opened up the East Coast to see the brand serve 48 states. Now, joining yet another family-rooted operation, this next chapter is sure to be an exciting one for both sides.
Allen Lund Company was established in 1976 by its namesake, becoming and remaining a strong family operation in logistics.
Congratulations to the Allen Lund team and its newly expanded network on this latest milestone.
