Hribar Logistics, LLC to acquire specific assets of MCS Trucking, Inc.; Ahern engaged to consummate deal.

/ Phoenix, AZ, November 28, 2011 —The trucking and logistics consulting firm of Ahern and Associates, Ltd., has again been entrusted to aid another buyer in expanding operations through a strategic acquisition. Andy Ahern, CEO of Ahern and Associates was recently hired by Hribar Logistics, LLC to assist management in the acquisition of specific assets of Indiana based, MCS Trucking, Inc.

A proud, family-run business, Hribar Logistics, LLC is a full service logistics provider operating out of Caledonia, Wisconsin since 1949. With a deep commitment to their customers and innovation, Hribar provides brokerage, pneumatic tank, long haul, dump flat and dry van services throughout the 48 contiguous states and Canada.

Established in 1994, MCS Trucking is recognized as a premier Midwest dry bulk carrier dedicated to providing customers with outstanding service. MCS’s dedication to service and efficient operations promises to be a good fit for Hribar’s strategic goals–so much so that Hribar is keeping the previous owner, Michael Slegers on staff as director of Indiana Sales and Operations.

Ahern is closing out what has been one of their busiest years in transportation acquisitions and operational planning for trucking and logistics companies. Ahern commented on the recent assignment, “Companies like Hribar and MCS are rich with history and dedicated to service—they’re what makes this country run and we’re pleased to be their trusted adviser.”
