Miami, FL – Bulk Express Transport (“Bulk”), a portfolio company of Alterna Equity Partners, today announced the acquisition of Attaway Hauling and Choice Bulk Carriers (collectively “Attaway”, combined with Bulk, the “Company”). The Company is a leader in professional transportation and logistics services, providing waste transfer station management and long-haul transportation, collection and loading of waste and other materials. The acquisition of Attaway expands Bulk’s geographic footprint throughout the Southeastern U.S., while simultaneously diversifying Bulk’s customer base and adding complementary services and end markets. The acquisition establishes the Company as one of the leading environmental, waste services and industrial transportation providers in the region, with over 30 years of experience providing best-in-class services to its customers across several end markets including integrated waste services companies, environmental services companies, recyclers, manufacturing companies and municipalities.
Headquartered in Gordon, GA, Attaway provides exceptional customer service across Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee, providing numerous waste and industrial services to clients including transfer station management, disposal hauling and liquid bulk hauling. Established in 2012, Attaway has grown rapidly in recent years to become a leading player in the region, supporting customers across a variety of waste and industrial end markets. On a combined basis, Bulk’s acquisition of Attaway further expands Bulk’s operational footprint and service offering, allowing the Company to support its diverse customer base across a broad service area.
“The Bulk Express family of companies is excited to partner with the management team at Attaway to facilitate the next phase of growth for both companies within the region,” said Steve Worster, CEO, Bulk Express. “Bulk Express has a well-established track record supporting top tier clients, and Attaway’s stellar reputation is a strong complement to our existing position in the Southeast.”
Worster will lead the Company post-closing, supported by the existing operations team at Attaway and with further operational support provided by the large resource base of Bulk Express across Florida and the Southeast.
“The partnership with Bulk Express provides Attaway the opportunity to continue our rapid expansion in the region, and also allows us to better serve customers across our diverse combined service offering,” said Robbie Attaway, founder, Attaway. “We are excited about the strong potential the combined business will have, and look forward to working with our new partners at Bulk.”
