In 1966, the first U.S. spacecraft orbited the moon, the “Batman” television series debuted, a gallon of gas cost 32 cents, and a 12,000-square-foot warehouse facility opened in Lakeland, Fla.

A lot has changed in the 50 years since Saddle Creek was founded. We have experienced dynamic growth, both organically and through strategic acquisitions. We’ve added new service offerings, invested in the latest technology, and expanded into new industries and markets to meet the needs of our customers.

Wondering when Saddle Creek first used a computer in the warehouse? When we began to expand outside of Florida? Made our first acquisition? Join us in a walk down memory lane and check out our “50 Years of Whatever It Takes!” timeline.

We’ve come a long way by doing Whatever It Takes! for our customers. We look forward to growing together with you in the years ahead. Can’t wait to see what’s next on the timeline!
