Mullen Group Ltd. (“Mullen Group“, “We“, “Our” and/or the “Corporation“) is pleased to provide an update on the integration, transition plan and name change of the business originally known as QuadExpress.
“Two months ago, we invested in what we believed was a unique 3PL business model. QuadExpress, an operating division of Quad/Graphics, Inc., provided our organization with the opportunity to expand our presence in the North America logistics market. With today’s announcement, we are well on our way to completing the transition of the business and technology into a standalone business in the Mullen Group. We have one goal for HAUListic LLC, and that is to provide HAUListic customers and sales agent partners with an industry leading technology platform supported by an experienced team of customer service professionals,” commented Mr. Murray K. Mullen, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
“We are excited with today’s announcement. The name change and the new logo provide our business with a new look. But the foundation of our past success remains the same – our commitment to our people and customers. At HAUListic, we are – Logistics – Simplified,” added Mr. Pat Malone, President, HAUListic LLC.
