Staci, Europe’s leading multichannel fulfillment provider, has completed the acquisition of Amware Fulfillment LLC, a top provider of direct-to-consumer, order fulfillment services with 15 facilities across the U.S.
The combined company gives growing brands a powerful multichannel fulfillment solution across North America and Europe, with 81 fulfillment centers (9.8 million square feet), including 18 facilities in the U.S. and 63 across France, Belgium, the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy and Spain.
Staci’s primary investment partner is Ardian, which acquired a majority stake in the company in 2019. Amware’s primary investment partner was Rotunda Capital Partners, which acquired a majority stake in the company in 2014.
Same Brand Name, Stronger Team
In the U.S., the company will continue to operate as Amware Fulfillment and Staci’s three U.S. facilities in Jersey City, NJ, Memphis, TN and Reno, NV will become part of a combined USA fulfillment network. Amware’s current leadership team will remain in place led by CEO, Harry Drajpuch. He will report to Nicolas Morisse, CEO of Eurodislog and Chairman of Staci US Corp.
Comments from Staci and Amware Executives
“The acquisition of Amware gives us a powerful eCommerce fulfillment capability in the important U.S. market and expands our global fulfillment platform,” says Staci Group CEO, Thomas Mortier. “Amware’s network of multi-client fulfillment centers aligns perfectly with Staci’s model of offering growing brands a flexible, pay-as-you-go logistics solution that scales quickly and economically to match revenue growth.”
According to Amware’s Harry Drajpuch, “In the current market for fulfillment services, it’s rare to find a provider that combines significant size and scale with a more personalized, collaborative approach to solution design. That’s the unique value the Staci-Amware union brings – robust, high-volume fulfillment and parcel shipping solutions that are also highly customized.”
Going forward, Amware’s focus will remain on providing high-volume, B2C fulfillment for growing D2C and multichannel brands that need to scale fulfillment operations to support growth. Customers of Staci and Amware will benefit from expanded service markets and significant know-how in fulfillment operations across 4,000+ global associates.
