MNX buys Global First

Deal cements longstanding relationship

May 8, 2019

LONG BEACH, Calif. – MNX Global Logistics has acquired Global First. Global First, a critical logistics provider offering high touch logistics services greatly complements MNX’s services. MNX and Global First have had a long standing management relationship dating back to April 2017. This acquisition cements that relationship.

“MNX and Global First have been working together for two years now and this union serves to bolster this relationship so that a broader and more consistent product and service offering can be offered to both our customers,” said Paul Martins, chairman of MNX’s advisory board.

“This acquisition, together with the recent acquisition of Network Global Logistics’ express and service parts logistics division further distinguishes MNX as the largest independent specialty logistics provider in the world.”

This announcement comes as one in a series of strategic business moves by MNX which support its global growth plan and commitment to continuously increase the capabilities that its customers demand.

With support from its financial sponsor, Audax Private Equity, who recently recapitalized the business in July 2018 to accelerate MNX’s strategic plan, MNX will continue to pursue additional acquisitions globally that focus on the time-critical logistics market.
