Atlanta-based Johnson Stephens Consulting, Inc. (JSC), a supply chain operations consultancy serving retailers, wholesalers, and distributors nationwide, has been acquired by Hy-Tek Material Handling, Inc., the premier single-source provider of material handling solutions. The acquisition was announced by Hy-Tek CEO Sam Grooms.

“The acquisition of JSC and formation of the Hy-Tek consulting division enable us to provide turnkey supply chain solutions to enhance productivity, streamline processes, and boost profitability for our customers,” said Grooms.

JSC Managing Principals Steve Johnson and Sandy Stephens head up the new Hy-Tek consulting division. JSC provides supply chain solutions to Neiman Marcus, The Home Depot, and Dick’s Sporting Goods among other retailers, wholesalers, e-commerce/direct-to-consumer companies, 3PLs, and consumer products distributors. JSC professionals, including 20 engineering consultants, have completed over 400 projects for more than 200 organizations since 2003. JSC has been recognized by Inc. as one of the 5,000 fastest-growing privately held companies in the U.S. and named a supply chain technology leader by Gartner’s Warehousing and Fulfillment Vendor Guide.

“JSC is thrilled to now offer an end-to-end supply chain solution. Hy-Tek’s integrated systems and industrial equipment expertise align perfectly with our engineering experience to deliver unsurpassed value,” said Stephens.

“Hy-Tek shares JSC’s values, passion, and entrepreneurial spirit. Not satisfied with merely providing recommendations, we work hand-in-glove to implement top-notch supply chain solutions,” said Johnson.
