Using the assets it acquired in the purchase of Questron Technology, Inc. and its subsidiaries, GE Supply, Shelton, Conn., recently launched GE Supply Logistics, LLC. The new Dallas-based business unit will develop and distribute supply chain management and inventory logistics management programs through two operating units, GE Supply Logistics and GE Supply Aerospace Logistics.
According to Jason Jones, who has been named president and general manager of the new unit, Questron was an ideal fit for the company. “The combined organizations will benefit from a natural synergy between our mutual customer bases, which include the aerospace industry, commercial and industrial users, and OEMs.”
Questron filed for Chapter 11 protection in February, and GE Supply won a bankruptcy court-approved auction of Questron’s assets in April. The transaction has received all necessary approvals.
