AMS Fulfillment Acquires EchoData Group
Posted by AMS / Tuesday, January 21, 2020
Valencia, CA, January 21, 2020 – AMS Fulfillment announced today that it has acquired EchoData Group. EchoData, located in Pennsylvania and Delaware, is an exceptional Fulfillment Services company that has been in operation for 36 years. The acquisition offers an ideal bi-coastal environment for clients and allows AMS to step fully into the phase of growth anticipated months ago when AMS was acquired by Fort Point Capital, a private equity firm that specializes in lower middle market, service-oriented companies including logistics.
Like AMS, EchoData Group supports complex order fulfillment programs across multiple sales channels. The acquisition of EchoData into the AMS family will further enable clients who are able to carry inventory on both coasts to reduce delivery time and cost. New clients, seeking a top-tier fulfillment partner, will find AMS well positioned as a truly global competitor in e-commerce, warehousing and fulfillment.
EchoData is seen as an excellent fit for AMS with regard to the mission of the company and AMS’ commitment to “do good” as a B-Corporation while also performing well for clients and shareholders.
In May of 2019, when AMS announced its acquisition by Fort Point Capital, CEO Jay Catlin spoke about the intention to expand, making it clear that growth is clearly an opportunity of the time. The e-commerce fulfillment and logistics sector of the global economy is rapidly growing, and prospects for growth of a company with the integrity of a B-Corporation are even more exciting.
With regard to the acquisition of EchoData, and the opportunities of growth, Catlin said: “EchoData is ideal for AMS in so many respects. We have been working closely with EchoData for the past two years as our exclusive partner on the east coast, providing bi-coastal fulfillment for several clients from both companies. Working with EchoData gave us exposure to their culture and team of fulfillment professionals, and we see true similarities between us which will serve as the bedrock of our success as we join forces.”
