A global supply chain consulting firm has acquired a fellow supply chain consulting leader, joining forces to provide quality client partnerships and solutions in the supply chain industry.

Vaco, through its Vaco Supply Chain Solutions supply chain consulting arm, has acquired MEBC Global. MEBC Global is also a consulting firm that provides innovative approaches to challenging supply chain processes as well as the challenges brought about through technology.

Under a new name, Plantensive, the two companies will provide a broader depth of consulting talent, expanded solution sets and a continued dedication to quality and client partnership for the supply chain industry.

The acquisition is in line with Vaco’s expansion of its supply chain footprint and it reinforces and broadens Vaco's existing expertise in supply chain optimization and JDA Software implementation.

"MEBC is known in the market for their strong methodology and approach to supply chain planning," said Will Mrotek, Managing Partner and Leader of Vaco's Supply Chain Solutions practice. "That, combined with their strong cultural alignment to Vaco, makes this merger a fantastic opportunity to drive synergy and efficiency for our customers."

"MEBC has always placed long term customer success as a priority," said Mark Brown, CEO of MEBC Global. "By joining forces with Vaco, we can now provide a broader opportunity to partner with our clients and meet their extended needs in today's artificial intelligence, omni-channel world."

"The addition of MEBC to the Vaco team and the ability to provide a more robust offering of supply chain solutions is very exciting for our ever-growing company," said Brian Waller, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer for Vaco. "We anticipate much growth in this space and with Plantensive, are poised to exceed the needs of manufacturing and retail clients around the globe with their supply chain and technology initiatives."

The Plantensive name and brand will officially launch on April 1, 2019.
