Revenue To Double In 2019
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 29/12/18
Longmont, CO: Eight Black Transport, the 2017 LCT Operator Of The Year today announced the acquisition of 2 prominent Denver based ground transport companies.
Red Boots Limousine and A Absolute Limousine become the 2nd and 3rd acquisition Eight Black has made in its short 3-year history.
Red Boots, owned and operated by Mary Claire Friesema and Ron Chamberlain, built a well-respected Denver based business over the last 6 years using a fleet of 4 vehicles.
Says Simon Chen, owner of Eight Black:
“Mary Claire and Ron are outstanding operators and wonderful customer service professionals. I always admired their work ethic and their dedication to their clients. Whenever we farmed work to them, they never let us down. They have always enjoyed what they do and it shows each and every day”
“I am delighted that they have decided to join our team”
A Absolute Limousine is owned by Mike McLaughlin. Mike originally purchased the company in 2010. He also had purchased American Heritage Limousines in 2011 and later that year, combined the 2 entities.
A former firefighter/EMT and 911 Dispatcher – Mike has always held safety as a top priority and it is clear by his dedication to his clients safety and his determination to remove the stress from their ground transportation experience that he was always able to deliver a superior service.
Both the Red Boots and A Absolute Limousine brands will remain, but the back office, reservations, customer service and the fleet will all be consolidated.
Financial terms of the 2 acquisitions remain undisclosed – apart from the fact that both are all cash transactions and no hard assets were acquired in the overall purchase of both entities. Eight Black has already expanded its existing fleet to cater for the additional volume and will continue to grow the fleet as needed.
