Hodge has been operating in warehousing and distribution spaces for nearly six decades. Our operational expertise helps us understand your requirements in developing a commercial space that's customized for your needs. Whether it's purchasing or leasing - we have a variety of options and we'll recommend the best.
We understand that every business, and every operation is different. That's why we don't bring a one-size-fits-all mentality to the table. We offer smart solutions, and are agile enough to meet the tough demands of our customers and their supply chains. For us, it's simple - we perform, you succeed.
Hodge's long history as both an end user and distributor of material handling equipment gives us the rare ability to see both sides of the equation. From our own operations, we understand how the right material handling systems, all working together as one, creates a more efficient operation. Match that expertise with our ability to have a pulse on all of the latest material handling equipment trends as a distributor, and you've got one powerful combination.
Hodge Company's subsidiary companies Hodge Material Handling, TM Logistics and Walter Development have combined forces to exist as one, unified brand - Hodge. Moving forward all entities will operate under one company, and one name.
For most of you, nothing will change immediately - other than how you identify us in our name and our look. After researching, we found that much of our audience didn't realize our full capabilities. We've always felt like we've offered the most complete package to tackling our customers' supply chain challenges, but we've always worked as separate entities to do so.
With the launch of our new brand strategy, we've become more integrated than ever, because that's what our customers need. The pressure on companies to execute the functions of the supply chain is higher than ever. We're ready to provide our expertise to help companies run a smarter, more efficient operation at every level – whatever their needs may be.
The change was due to variety of reasons. We're growing, we're expanding into new markets, and we're adding many new employees to our family. We've always been subsidiaries of the same parent company (Hodge Company), but we believe that we're stronger as one. With closely-related service offerings all relating to material handling and logistics, our subsidiaries work with the same customers across their supply chains - with each entity tackling a different function of the overall supply chain.
Now more than ever, it's increasingly more apparent that an integrated approach is necessary to deal with the complex demands of the supply chain. That's why we've made the move to rebrand our company and market ourselves as one company to further expand on the idea of offering our customers a more integrated approach.
The development and unveiling of our new brand has been over a year in the making, and we're not done yet. In fact, we don't ever see our brand evolution being complete.
We've come a long way, and we're excited for what's next.
You will likely see pieces of our new brand immediately, take this site for example. However, it will be a long process to completely convert all of our brand touchpoints and we want to ensure we are still providing the best service possible while we're undergoing brand changes.
