The purchasing company, Trienda Holdings, is majority-owned by Kruger Family Holdings II, LLC. There are other minority owners, according to reports. Founded in 1975, TriEnda has roughly 140 employees. It was acquired by Spara in 2011, which changed the operation’s name to Lexington Logistics, and later to TriEnda Lexington Logistics.

The new management team is led by CEO John Brown, who is a shareholder of the new holding company. He said the new owners are committed to the material handling industry as well as the renewal of manufacturing in North America.

According to David Kruger, company president, the “customer-first mentality” of employees was a deciding consideration. “It’s hard to find a group of individuals who work so hard to meet the needs of their customers on a day‐to‐day basis,” Kruger said in a release. “The customer‐first mentality that is engrained in the culture here was a motivating factor in purchasing the operating assets.”
