Evansville-based Atlas World Group Inc has acquired Pennsylvania-based Champion International Moving, Ltd. Atlas says the deal marks the largest acquisition in company history.
Champion is a "household goods forwarder that serves corporate customers, relocation management companies, federal government agencies and a small group of agents internationally."
“We are excited to join the Atlas World Group family,” said Ron Smith, founder of Champion International Moving in a news release. “The synergies and assets they provide will help Champion exceed customer expectations while creating many opportunities for future growth. The integrity, attitude and work ethic of Atlas World Group and its employees fits perfectly with our culture, creating an easy path forward.”
