Background

Sunland’s Story

In 1982 Sunland Distribution, Inc., was founded with an entrepreneurial spirit by Sam Cole in Greenville, SC, and established as a successful local public warehouse provider. After learning the business through his experience as Sunland’s Head of Sales, Arch Thomason purchased the company in 2009 and became CEO with a new vision for Sunland. His first steps were focusing on quality and establishing expertise in the automotive, chemical, retail, and paper industries.

In 2013, a new executive leadership team of logistics experts was assembled to take the company from being a local provider to a competitive national provider. Together the team developed and executed the Destination 2018 Strategic Growth Plan along with embarking on its journey to become a lean organization focused on continuous improvement and eliminating waste. Today, Sunland remains focused on continuously improving and growing its high performance team, geographic footprint, and most importantly – customer value.
