SCI Group emerges as the new brand for Progistix, AMG, Assured and First Team



    TORONTO, Aug. 20 /CNW/ - The Canadian supply chain company that began as
Progistix Solutions and, over the last 14 years, expanded to include AMG
Logistics, Assured Logistics and First Team Transport has now evolved into a
unified brand called SCI Group Inc.
    Jim Eckler, president and CEO of SCI Group (www.scigroup.com),
headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, says the new, integrated brand reinforces
the company's market position as an end-to-end provider of supply chain
solutions to business, retail and industrial customers. SCI Group's new
identity is also critical to the company's growth strategy as it prepares to
focus on new markets and strengthen its hold in existing ones.
    "By uniting all of our operations under one solid brand and through our
revamped web sites, we are letting our customers know that we are a strong,
stable company with multiple capabilities across a wide range of supply chain
management services," he says. "As the SCI Group, we can offer the convenience
of an integrated solution using technology and advanced supply chain practices
resulting in cost savings and streamlining of logistics and administrative
functions."

    The SCI Group includes three supporting brands:

    Progistix Solutions Inc., which offers highly specialized service parts
logistics solutions for technology and industrial businesses

    SCI Logistics Ltd. for supply chain services for manufacturers and
retailers with direct-to-store, business-to-consumer and business-to-business
fulfillment requirements. The AMG Logistics and Assured Logistics brands have
been merged into this new brand.

    First Team Transport Inc., which provides contract and dedicated
transportation services for high-value products as well as general
transportation management solutions throughout Canada.

    As part of its rebranding strategy, SCI Group has created a unified and
highly recognizable brand design across its subsidiaries featuring blue and
red as its corporate colors.
