GIBBSTOWN, NJ -- Anpesil Distribution Services has announced the rebranding of its name and logotype. Effective May 1, the company name will become Thayer Distribution.
Anpesil explained that the rebranding initiative does not reflect a change in ownership or management of the company. The Gallicchio family will continue to run the business, as it has done for the past 25 years.
"The company will continue to provide the great products, low prices, and superior services on which it has built its reputation in the industry," Anpesil reported.
The new name was taken from a key event in the company's history. More than three decades ago, the Gallicchio family acquired its first warehouse, on Thayer Street in Philadelphia. That facility was the launching pad for the present successful regional distribution business.
"The rebranding offered us an opportunity to pay homage to our roots and to remind us that with hard work, we can achieve anything we set our minds to," said Guido Gallicchio, president and chief executive.
The company also will launch a new website, featuring the new branding and an online ordering system; it's scheduled to go live on May 1 at thayerdist.com. Online ordering remains available at the current sites, vendchannel.com or anpesil.com, through April 30.

Its sales offices may be reached at (800) 999-4271 or by fax at (866) 681-2402.
