“Adding The Expediter, their knowledgeable employees and valued customers, will allow us to better serve our customers in the southeast,” says DexKo Global CEO Fred Bentley. 

“Bringing The Expediter into the Dexter Distribution Group provides a strategic location in South Florida that will help to better serve our combined customers while also continuing to build on the success and growth of the business,” says Dexter President and CEO Adam Dexter.

Sven Magnuson, operations manager, The Expediter, says, “We are proud to combine the legacy of our own family business with that of Dexter’s.
