Acquisition of General Customs Brokers' Business 2017-04-06

We are pleased to announce that on March 21, 2017 we concluded the purchase of General Customs Brokers Inc.'s business.

General is a long-standing friend and neighbour of ours in Old Montreal. They started operations in 1972, with Alan Gartner and his brother Sydney joining the firm in 1976 and 1990 respectively. General’s niche market has always been the textile and apparel industries, and they were innovators of the Apparel Remission program. We are very happy to bring them into the Milgram family.

And we are also very happy to say that the owners, Alan Gartner and Syd Gartner, will continue to work with Milgram on a full-time basis to facilitate the client transition. Mike Turner, Richard Billau, Garth McCormick and other personnel have agreed to stay on as well. 
With so much in common and with our knowledge and experience in their niche market, we expect to service General’s business well and to offer complementary services such as consulting, U.S. customs brokerage, international freight forwarding and North American transport.

The effective date for General’s shipments to be cleared into Canada under Milgram's security is April 18th, 2017.

Please join us in welcoming General Customs Brokers to the Milgram family!
