UPS to Buy Polish Parcel Company

Share this article:
United Parcel Service Inc. said yesterday that it agreed to acquire Messenger Service Stolica S.A., a parcel and express delivery company in Poland.


Terms were not disclosed. UPS, Atlanta, expects to complete the transaction early in the second quarter of 2005, subject to customary closing conditions.


Stolica, Warsaw, offers customers a full suite of domestic delivery services through a nationwide network. The company has operated in Poland since 1993. Company sales in 2004 totaled almost $64 million.


UPS has offered service in Poland since 1992. In 2004, the year the country joined the European Union, UPS enjoyed a nearly 35 percent gain in export volume growth from Poland versus the prior year.
