Magnate Worldwide Completes the Acquisition of Domek Logistics

OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill. — Magnate Worldwide (“MWW”), a partnership between CIVC Partners, L.P. (“CIVC”) and Magnate Capital Partners (“MCP”), is pleased to announce the acquisition of Domek Logistics, LLC (“Domek” or the “Company”).

Domek, headquartered in Crystal Lake, Illinois, provides asset-light freight forwarding and customs house brokerage services primarily to customers located in the Midwest. With a focus on complex logistics solutions and high-touch service, Domek provides a range of services for all international transportation needs, including air, ocean, full-container/less-than-container loads, multi-vendor consolidations, rail and truck. Domek will become part of Masterpiece International (“Masterpiece”), MWW’s customs brokerage and international logistics subsidiary.

“We’re delighted to welcome the Domek Logistics team to our Masterpiece family,” said Thomas Gilgen, President of Masterpiece International. “The addition to the Midwest will further expand our presence and operations in the market and will support continued growth in our International Logistics Solutions division.” Following the Domek acquisition, Masterpiece International will have 17 offices across the United States.

The entire Domek team, including co-founders Dave Domek, Jennifer Parker, John Wember, and Tina Zabielski will remain in place following the transaction and will continue to provide superior levels of service to clients. “We are excited to join Masterpiece and to become part of the broader Magnate Worldwide family,” said Dave Domek. “We believe our team is a perfect fit because Domek was built on the same foundational pillars as Masterpiece – experience, knowledge, reputation, and customer service.”

MWW continues to look for best-in-class companies that operate in the international freight forwarding and North American premium transportation markets. For more information on MWW’s family of companies and acquisition criteria, please visit www.magnateworldwide.com.
