Snyder’s-Lance acquires Stateline Service Corp. assets

Snyder’s-Lance Inc., Charlotte, N.C., has acquired substantially all assets of Stateline Service Corp., a snack food distributor in Massachusetts. The acquisition is part of the company’s plans to continue growing and strengthening its national distribution network.

“We’re excited to expand our direct store delivery (DSD) distribution network through this acquisition,” says Ed Good, president of S-L Distribution Co., a subsidiary of Snyder’s-Lance Inc. “Through closer working relationships with key retailers, we expect to build on the successful business that Stateline has developed in this important geographic area. We see an opportunity to expand our DSD network, enhance service to retail customers and develop long-term opportunities for our independent business owners (IBO) in the region.”

For a number of years, Snyder’s-Lance has built its DSD network through a blend of selective acquisitions and organic growth. Stateline operates a DSD distribution system and distributes Snyder’s-Lance’s branded products as well as several additional partner-brand product lines.

The Stateline routes will be integrated with the company’s extensive DSD network, providing a number of benefits, including the ability to better service retail partners with the company’s branded products, while leveraging supply chain and other efficiencies. The purchase price was not disclosed.
