Fleming Completes Core-Mark Acquisition

DALLAS - Wholesale food distributor Fleming on Tuesday announced that the acquisition of Core-Mark International Inc. has been completed, signifying the company's continuous strategy to create a national piece-pick network that complements its national case-pick and flow-through network.

San Francisco-based Core-Mark International distributes cigarettes and candy -- plus health and beauty aids, fast food, snacks, groceries, beverages, batteries, and film -- to retailers in the western US and Canada.

"Fleming has created a supplier network capable of efficiently distributing products by the individual item, by the case, by the pallet, or by the truckload, to any retail format," said Mark Hansen, Fleming chairman and CEO. "The acquisition of Core-Mark continues our drive to amass scale in an industry that benefits greatly from size. It further diversifies our customer base across a wide spectrum of retail formats. Additionally, it presents meaningful sales opportunities for our customers, our vendors and our company."
