Pittsburgh-based GENCO, with more than 130 warehouse locations, has customers in technology, consumer, industrial, retail and health-care markets.
Its services include contract packaging, processing returned items, warehousing, transportation services and inventory liquidation.
The sale price wasn’t disclosed.
GENCO traces its roots to a business that made deliveries with a horse and wagon starting in 1898. In 2010, Genco Supply Chain Solutions bought ATC Technology Corp. for about $512.6 million and the company received an investment from private-equity firm Greenbriar Equity Group LLC.
Todd R. Peters will remain chief executive of GENCO.
FedEx has seen its revenue grow recently as a restructuring that began in 2012 has started to pay off. In its latest quarter, the package-delivery giant beat Wall Street’s expectations for earnings and revenue, driven by strength in ground, freight and express operations.
