Magnate Worldwide is pleased to announce the acquisition of Hybrid International Forwarding, a strategic addition to Masterpiece International that specialises in the transport of works of art and antiquities. As Magnate Worldwide continues to execute on strategic growth plans, even during these challenging times, the acquisition expands its existing presence in Atlanta, a critical US gateway market, and enhances its service capabilities.
“Hybrid is a leading logistics firm known for its commitment to customers and unique commercial approach to the marketplace. This acquisition fits our strategy perfectly and is an ideal complement to Masterpiece International,” said Magnate’s CEO, Dante Fornari.
“Hybrid’s strength in ocean import services will augment our service capabilities in a meaningful way. Combining strong leadership with a great cultural fit, this acquisition will complement Masterpiece’s operational and commercial capabilities,” said Thomas Gilgen, President of Masterpiece International.
Hybrid International Forwarding distinguishes itself by functioning as an extension of its clients’ supply chains by utilising their large global network with excellent local service and a personal touch.
Hybrid Founder, Andy Heller said that his team is excited to head into a bright future with Masterpiece, and looks forward to continuing the tradition of differentiated service to customers as part of Masterpiece International. “Masterpiece’s resources and reputation make it a perfect home for Hybrid’s team. We are excited to become part of Masterpiece and add our unique skills to the foundation they’ve been building over the years,” Andy added.
Hybrid’s office in Atlanta will become the next Masterpiece network location, expanding its Atlanta presence, with access to the world’s busiest airport in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, and increasingly more important Savannah and Charleston ports.
