Suddath is proud to announce its second acquisition in 2011 - City Moving Systems, Inc., based in Kent, Wash.

In January 2011, Suddath acquired Midwest-based Barrett Moving and Storage. These two industry leaders combine to create a $350 million corporation with more than 1,700 employees and 19 locations nationwide.

With City, Suddath has strategically expanded to include an office in greater Seattle and now has presence in all quadrants coast-to-coast.

"We have added a well-established presence in the upper Northwest, which will expand our footprint and increase service capabilities for our customers," said Barry Vaughn, chief executive officer of The Suddath Companies. "I am most enthusiastic about bringing these two storied and highly reputable cultures together."

"We are proud to become part of The Suddath Companies, where delivering the best in customer service holds the same importance that it has for City," said Donna Hyatt, president of City Moving Systems, Inc. "We know that we will continue a 105-year legacy of quality and innovation as part of this great new company."
