Hodge Company repositions subsidiaries under one new brand - HodgeTuesday, October 11, 2016
For nearly 60 years, Hodge Company has been operating in Dubuque, IA and the surrounding areas. The company was founded by Walter J. Hodge in 1958, first known as Hodge Transit Warehouse Company.
Over time the company has evolved to open several subsidiary companies with related purposes and services including: TM Logistics, Hodge Material Handling, Walter Development, and Infosafe Records Management. Until now, these four sister companies all operated as separate entities.
Moving forward TM Logistics, Hodge Material Handling, and Walter Development will all exist as one company – Hodge. All services offered by the former sister companies will remain with the exception of Infosafe. Last month, Infosafe joined Access, the records management industry’s second largest provider.
The move to consolidate these companies occurred for several important reasons, but most importantly to position the company for future growth. The separate companies’ shared a strategy that has always aimed to offer an integrated suite of service offerings to help manufacturers and supply chains operate more efficiently. Now, the company aims to do it under a single brand – Hodge.
“The challenges of the supply chain become significantly more complex each and every day” said Michael Fullan, Hodge Marketing Manager. “We’re able to provide the right tools and recommendations for almost any of these challenges and at the same time, pass on the unmatched benefits that comes from working with a partner that understands your business at multiple levels.”View all Industry News
