Golden, CO — Craters & Freighters, an international provider of specialty freight solutions, is marking the 30th anniversary of its founding. Formed on June 26, 1990, the company has grown steadily across three decades and today has more than 60 brick-and-mortar locations nationwide.
“It’s really amazing to look back at our humble beginnings as a small specialty crating, packaging and shipping company and then to see where we are today,” said Craters & Freighters Founder and CEO Diane Gibson. “We’re now a national company and market leader with an extensive network of business partners that enables us to assist customers around the world. I’m truly grateful to our franchisees throughout the U.S. and to all of our team members. The company owes its longevity and track record of success to their hard work and dedication.”
Craters & Freighters was a pioneer in the specialty crating and shipping industry in the 1990s and continues to be a recognized leader today. The company specializes in handling large, fragile, expensive and hard-to-move assets for businesses in a wide range of sectors including telecommunications, IT, aerospace, biotechnology, government, healthcare and industrial. Craters & Freighters also serves residential customers.
“It’s been a challenging year for our customers around the world and for our company, but as a government-defined essential business, we’re continuing to assist organizations and individuals with their crating, shipping and logistics needs,” said President and CFO Matt Schmitz. “We’re thrilled to have reached this remarkable milestone, but given the ongoing concerns about COVID-19, we won’t be holding any large-scale celebrations this year. Instead, we’re looking forward to saluting 30 years of excellence with our franchisees at a gathering in Denver slated for April 2021.”
