Vaco has acquired MEBC Global by its Supply Chain Solutions practice through an agreement set to close on December 31, 2018. The two entities will combine forces under the name Plantensive and will provide a greater depth of consulting talent, an expanded solution set and a continued dedication to quality and client partnership for the supply chain industry.
The new entity will also retain all existing leadership and team members and will be managed collectively by Valco's Will Mrotek along with MEBC's Mark Brown and Grant Lock. The Plantensive name and brand will officially launch on April 1, 2019.
"MEBC has always placed long term customer success as a priority," says Mark Brown, CEO of MEBC Global. "By joining forces with Vaco, we can now provide a broader opportunity to partner with our clients and meet their extended needs in today's artificial intelligence, omni-channel world."
Vaco's acquisition of MEBC Global reinforces and broadens Vaco's existing expertise in supply chain optimization and JDA Software implementation. Plantensive will join several specialty management consulting areas of expertise within the larger Vaco entity, which is expected to post revenue numbers exceeding $500 million.
"MEBC is known in the market for their strong methodology and approach to supply chain planning," says Will Mrotek, managing partner and leader of Vaco's Supply Chain Solutions practice. "That, combined with their strong cultural alignment to Vaco, makes this merger a fantastic opportunity to drive synergy and efficiency for our customers."
