Ohio-based Peoples Services has purchased local logistics leader Grimes Logistics Services.

"The six Grimes locations will expand our regional footprint in the Southeast and allow all our clients to continue to receive exceptional service at a choice of physical locations that improve their supply chain efficiency," said Peoples Services CEO Doug Sibila.

The combined businesses will operate over 7.5 million square feet of contract and public warehouse space, over 100 tractors and 325 trailers across 42 facilities.

Grimes, founded in 1972, was one of Jacksonville's fastest-growing companies last year and handles warehousing, packaging, staffing and trucking services. It employs more than 100. People's Warehousing is present in seven states and similarly offers a wide range of logistics services.

Grimes will become Grimes Total Distribution, Inc. as a fully owned subsidiary of Peoples Services. Grimes owner Thomas Grimes will retire as chairman, but the companies leadership team will stay intact. With the addition of Grimes, People's Warehousing will grow from a $100 million company to a $120 million company.
