Andlauer acquires Boyle Transportation
Andlauer Healthcare Group (AHG) has acquired 100 percent of Boyle Transportation for $80 million.
“We are thrilled to be welcoming the Boyle Transportation team to Andlauer Healthcare Group,” said Michael Andlauer, chief executive of AHG. “Boyle is a leader in the temperature-sensitive life sciences sector and brings complementary security and visibility capabilities to the defense sector.”
Boyle Transportation, which was just named one of the “2021 Best Fleets to Drive For’’ for the second consecutive year by the Truckload Carriers Association and CarriersEdge, provides specialized transportation services to clients in the life sciences and government and defense sectors.
“We’re excited to join the Andlauer team,” Andrew and Marc Boyle, co-presidents of Boyle Transportation, said in a statement. “As part of the highly regarded AHG platform, we will be able to offer a broader suite of services to our valuable clients. We are confident that this strategic move will help Boyle Transportation continue to be the provider of choice to clients and the employer of choice to transportation and logistics professionals in the U.S.”
In addition to the Boyle acquisition, AHG has acquired the remaining 51 percent of Skelton USA after the group previously acquired the first 49 percent on March 1.
Skelton USA was launched in 2017 and has been growing rapidly through successfully leveraging its reputation and brand for cold chain expertise.
“Our acquisition of the remainder of Skelton USA coupled with Boyle Transportation significantly advances our strategic expansion into the U.S. health-care market,” Andlauer said. “Each of Boyle and Skelton USA have a strong commitment to customer focused care and a people-first approach, which are core values of the Andlauer Healthcare Group.”
According to the acquisition agreements, Boyle Transportation and Skelton USA will join AHG’s platform of dedicated health care supply chain solutions and will continue to be led by their respective executive leadership teams.
