Enstructure Acquires Port Contractors

Terminal and logistics company Enstructure announced November 18 that it has acquired Port Contractors and its affiliates, allowing Enstructure’s expansion to the Mid-Atlantic market.

The move positions Enstructure as a major East Coast terminal operator.

With primary operations in Wilmington, Del., Fairless Hills, Pa. and Palm Beach, Fla., the company services its customers across more than 205 acres, including 560,000 square feet of industrial warehousing and direct Class I railroad connectivity. Port Contractors’ president, Mike Evanko, and its tenured management team will continue to lead the company’s day-to-day operations. 

“With the addition of Port Contractors to the Enstructure family of companies, we have expanded into the high-growth Mid-Atlantic market while partnering with Port Contractors’ ownership and its exceptional operating team led by Mike Evanko,” said Matthew Satnick and Philippe De Montigny, co-CEOs of Enstructure. “We are delighted to welcome Port Contractors to the team and look forward to supporting the company’s long-standing customers with our broader terminal and logistics solutions.”
