Conexus is proud to announce that April 2013 marks a major milestone in the company’s history as Conexus and its employees celebrate its 10-year anniversary in business. Conexus has grown exponentially over the last 10 years and has helped thousands of customers reach their supply chain goals.
Founded in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 2003 as Melton Logistics, Conexus started out with two employees and big ideas. The company enjoyed rapid success and growth in its early years and in 2006, Conexus opened a facility in Laredo, Texas to support its growing international business. This fifteen acre facility, which currently supports all of Conexus’ international customer needs, gave Conexus the ability to multiply its business while strategically positioning the company to handle projected growth for years to come. Most recently in 2012, Melton Logistics was renamed and rebranded to Conexus to further emphasize its growth and service diversification, which now includes truckload, less-than-truckload, temperature controlled, flatbed, over-dimensional, intermodal, expedited ground and air and specialized freight.
“Conexus is the result of big ideas, a strong vision and passionate people who have been committed to making this company great since day one.” said Kyle Gholston, Vice President of Conexus. “We have everyone to thank for our success. From our customers to our carriers to our employees and service providers, we have succeeded in good times and bad because of their combined loyalty and support. We would not be where we are today without the great partnerships and people that make up Conexus and our customer and carrier base.”
Throughout 2013, Conexus and its employees will be giving back to the communities that house its offices, both in Tulsa and Laredo, by building new homes, cleaning up neighborhoods, walking for various causes, raising funds to support local and national non-profits, participating in awareness events and freely contributing its knowledge and expertise.
“Ten years is a major milestone and a time of great celebration for us,” said Gholston. “We want to spend the year giving back to the communities, carriers, employees and customers that have helped us achieve so much.”
