SMC³ Celebrates Tenth Annual “Varsity Day”

Community, government leaders and local businesses join SMC³ at its elegant new campus

SMC³, an industry association specializing in data services, technology tools and educational programs for the freight transportation industry, announces its celebration of two company milestones: the organization’s tenth anniversary as a Fayette community business and its recent completion of a campus environment developed for it and other local businesses to enjoy and grow within.

“We at SMC³ could not be more pleased with the choice made ten years ago to headquarter our business in Peachtree City,” commented Jack E. Middleton, SMC³ president and CEO. “The company’s annual “Varsity Day” event celebrates that success—our opportunity to show our long-term commitment to the community, and to be a good neighbor.”

Middleton also recalled the December 2008 completion of the company’s second local building, Commerce Pointe, which is adjacent to its corporate headquarters in the Commerce Center building. The addition of the new building has created a lush, wooded campus for SMC³ employees, as well as new and existing tenants, and “completes our vision set forth five years ago,” Middleton said.

Over 220 people attended yesterday’s tenth annual Varsity Day celebration, including members of the Peachtree City fire and police departments; SMC³ tenants, retirees and employees; and many friends of the company. Participants enjoyed a catered meal of Varsity restaurant mainstays, listened to entertainment from the band Timeless Highway, and used the opportunity to establish and reestablish personal and business relationships.

Peachtree City Mayor Harold Logsdon noted, “We’re just so proud of Jack. He’s got a successful business here, and we’re proud to have him in Peachtree City. We’re really proud of the company’s record first-quarter earnings in the economic downturn; that’s just a tribute to him, his leadership, and the entire SMC³ staff. And for him to make the investment in the new building says he’s confident in Peachtree City. And we’re confident in him.”

Since 1935, SMC³ has provided data, technology and education for the less-than-truckload (LTL) motor freight industry. SMC³’s customers include shippers, carriers, logistics service providers and freight payment companies.
