Houser Transport, Inc., of Vale, N.C., is pleased to announce that it has acquired half of Furniture Tech’s, a third-party logistics warehouse and home delivery firm headquartered in Ontario, Calif. Furniture Tech’s will become a division of Houser Transport, Inc.

The joint venture will provide greater synergies within each of the organizations to provide the best service possible to current and future customers.

Houser Transport, Inc. and Furniture Tech’s together are uniquely positioned to provide expedited second- or third-day delivery on truckload, less than truckload (LTL), and LTL volume shipments from the Carolinas to California, Nevada and Arizona, and second- or third-day delivery on truckload shipments from California, Nevada and Arizona to the Carolinas.

‘This is a great fit for us. We look forward to adding more services for our customers, while growing both companies,” said Sam Houser, Houser Transport, Inc. Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.

Mark Ramirez, President of Furniture Tech’s, said ‘This joint venture will provide a tremendous opportunity to add expedited service to the furniture industry—not only business-to-business but also business-to-home.’

Furniture Tech’s has recently expanded to a larger, state-of-the-art distribution facility. This move allows the company to combine its third-party logistics (3PL) warehouse and home delivery operations all in the same 107,000-square-foot facility at 1540 E. Acacia Street Ontario, CA 91761.
