Long-term Executives Complete Purchase of The Hill and Griffith Company and HG Logistics
Mike Lawry and Ryan Canfield, two long-term executives of The Hill and Griffith Company, have completed the purchase of all assets of the company and that of HG Logistics.
After the transition, the new executives will focus on actively growing the two companies. Mike Lawry has spent 32 years with The Hill and Griffith Company and has served as Chief Operations Officer since 2012; he will now serve as its Chief Executive Officer and as President of HG Logistics. Ryan Canfield has been with The Hill and Griffith Company for 17 years, most recently as Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Ryan will now serve as Chief Executive Officer for HG Logistics and President of The Hill and Griffith Company.
Under new ownership, all products, services, formulations, patents, and trademarks will remain. In addition, both companies' teams will remain in place, barring title changes for Lawry and Canfield.
"The company has a tremendous reputation for integrity, quality, and support; the same can be said for the people that work for it," said Lawry. "We strive to continue to build upon that sterling reputation and our 127-year history—all with little to no disruptions to our customers."
HG Logistics is a third-party transportation logistics company with a focus on building relationships its partners can count on. The new owners will continue its growth through new and existing partnerships, such as its access to Van, Refrigerated, Flatbed, Over Dimensional, LTL, and over 16,000 qualified carriers.
Canfield commented, "We know firsthand from our tenure at The Hill and Griffith Company that we have an excellent foundation, which will provide support and stability as we reinvest to enhance and expand our products and services." After the transition, the new executives will focus on actively growing the two companies, investing in more significant R&D and technology enhancements.
