US (NY): Delaware Valley Floral Group acquires Nathan James Wholesale

The Delaware Valley Floral Group (DVFG) acquired certain assets of Nathan James Wholesale (NJW), on October 2, 2017. Located in Newark Valley, New York, NJW is an 9 year old company, which has been serving florists in the Central, Finger Lakes and Southern Tier regions of New York. The business will be consolidated into DVFlora, a division of DVFG.

The customers of NJW will be served from the current DVFlora Sales and Distribution Centers in Wilkes-Barre and Syracuse. Nathan Little, owner at NJW commented; Cinnamon and I have been blessed to be able to serve the floral industry for the past nine years. I grew up with my grandfather in retail and my father in wholesaling and will miss the industry that has treated my family so well for generations.  Ken Wilkins and the entire staff at DVFlora have gone above and beyond to make the transition as smooth as possible. Most importantly our customers, many who have become like family, are in good hands.

Ken Wilkins, DVFGs VP of Business Development, commented: NJW has a history of excellent quality and service with the floral customers they serve.  Owners Nate and Cinnamon Little are leaving the flower industry to pursue other endeavors and we wish them well.  We have had great success adding wholesalers to our company and remain interested in further acquisition opportunities.

Jack Chidester, DVFGs CEO, stated: The NJW acquisition compliments and expands the customer base for both our Wilkes-Barre and Syracuse Sales and Distribution Centers, and continues to strengthen our commitment in the Northeast marketplace.
