A&R Logistics Inc. is expanding its service to the plastics industry through the acquisition of Blue Water Plastic Transport LLC of St. Clair, Mich.
A&R, based in Louisville, Ky., said the specialty bulk transportation and logistics services company will provide an expanded presence in the Midwest.
BWP mostly serves Michigan, Illinois and Ohio and includes warehousing services for plastic makers, distributors and recyclers.
"BWP is a great strategic acquisition for A&R as it increases both the company's tractor fleet and its density in the Midwest," said Konrad Salaber, managing director at A&R owner Wind Point Partners, in a statement.
Wind Point just acquired A&R in May when the private equity firm revealed intentions to seek acquisitions to help growth.
