JK Moving & Storage Acquires Gaithersburg-based Thomas AAA
Expansive services and fleet to compliment current operations.
October 18, 2004 - Sterling, VA—JK Moving & Storage announced today the acquisition of Thomas AAA Moving and Storage, a Gaithersburg, MD-based company specializing in local, long distance, international and warehousing services, including some of the same core services provided by Sterling, VA-based JK.
This transaction will provide a broader geographic infrastructure, through which JK will continue to provide its highly-acclaimed premier levels of customer service. It will also help JK achieve its goals of expanding into the Maryland marketplace, continuing to be competitive with travel time and assuring its commitments to being on-time to all jobs.
According to JK President Charles Kuhn, the acquisition will make JK Moving and Storage a major player on the County's economic development scene. "Not only will we maintain the positions of all 75 current Thomas AAA employees, but in the process, we will add another 100 new jobs over the next 12 months, including everything from administrative services, sales and drivers to packers and helpers," Kuhn further said. "What's more, our future plans call for an additional development of office and warehouse space, which means increased construction employment and expanded tax revenues for the County." Thomas AAA currently services its customer base from a 40,000-square-foot facility in Gaithersburg. According to Kuhn, JK plans to construct an additional 100,000-square-foot facility in the Gaithersburg area.
The company, Kuhn says, will continue to operate under the Thomas AAA Moving and Storage name for the next 12-to-24 months, after which time it will adopt the JK brand.
With a focus on unparalleled customer service, innovative staff training and an uncommon dedication to its employees, JK Moving & Storage has enjoyed its reputation as one of the premier companies in the Washington area. Recognized as the third-largest independent mover in the nation, and honored through numerous industry awards, accolades and professional achievements, Kuhn feels the acquisition of Thomas AAA will only serve to further entrench their image.
