From Corporate Parent

Lavino Shipping Company, Phil- adelphia, Pa., announced recently that it had been purchased from

E.J. Lavino and Company, its corporate parent, by an invest- ment group represented by the shipping company's current man- agement.

William J. Neumann, vice presi- dent of finance and administra- tion, will maintain their respon- sibilities and serve as directors of the new organization.

In announcing the purchase,

Mr. Muldoon said that "The sale is a positive step for each com- pany. The 61-year operating re- lationship between E.J. Lavino and Company and Lavino Ship- ping Company has been positive and profitable. Now both parent and subsidiary will be better able to concentrate on specialized lines of commerce. "The current transition pro- vides continuity of leadership to

Lavino Shipping Company and a guarantee that its reputation for excellent service will be main- tained. All current services and facilities of the company are to be continued. The integration of ownership and management will allow Lavino Shipping Company the greatest flexibility to explore all profit opportunities in the spe- cialized transportation and logis- tics field," Mr. Muldoon stated.
