    MANKO Delivery Systems Inc. – One Year Later!

    It is our pleasure to confirm the success of the first year of MANKO Delivery Systems, Inc. under the ownership and direction of Dave Armitage – CEO / President and Bryan Bilchik – COO / SVP.

    Acquiring the business in January of 2014 and working diligently on establishing a solid foundation for service in our marketplace, it has been a year of opportunity and development. We have assembled an excellent team of dedicated Management, Operations and Driver personnel. This team consistently exceeds the service standards set forth by the various customers’ requirements and is a critical element in our confidence for the future of MANKO.

    February 25, 2015 marks the anniversary of our expansion to the southwest Florida marketplace when we opened a dedicated facility for service. This facility (5,865 sq ft) with dock high and ramp grade access, allows for direct line haul connection from our Tampa facility (46,400 sq ft) and distribution to the markets throughout southwest Florida. Jeremy Garbin, RSW Station Manager, has been with us from our initial market planning through to today and leads the team in Fort Myers in providing excellent service to MANKO customers. The additional facility supports our geographic coverage goals of providing direct service from Hernando County (Brooksville, FL) on the north, Collier County (Marco) to the south, Polk County (Lakeland) to the east and the Gulf Coast to the west!

    We will continue to build on the foundation established in warehouse, cross dock, line haul, white glove, two man, lift-gate and courier services. We are looking to add the customers, equipment and facilities necessary to provide excellence in service throughout Florida!
