OUR HISTORY

Family values from the very start

In 1966, our founder, William G. “Bill” Verst, set out to build a customer-first, no-nonsense warehousing company—the type of company run by honest, hardworking people who always do the right thing to get results for customers.

We’ve since expanded well beyond that initial vision, both in terms of our physical scale and our solutions. But one thing remains constant: an unwavering commitment to serve our Verst family—including clients, employees, business partners and our community.

What Customers Are Saying

"I would like to first congratulate you on an amazing physical inventory this year! The work that Rick, Cathy, Rob, Crystal, and team did to accommodate us with a near perfect inventory during this type of environment is nothing short of spectacular. 

I am proud of the way your team stepped up with all of the labor challenges, market fluctuations, and projects all happening at the same time.  This group has had a fantastic year servicing our customers, vendors, tollers, and plants. Your flexibility to add and subtract space as needed has been highly appreciated and a big part of a successful 2021. 

An additional thank you to Paul, Shawn, Dan, and Rick for working with us to ensure we are set up for success with staffing and equipment for our growth plans in 2022.  It has been a fantastic year and I consider your service excellent and your inventory controls world class!"

Sam Adkins, 3rd Party Warehouse Manager

"Verst has a vast range of services, they are easy to work with, and we really enjoy the mom-and-pop style of business."

Hal Simons, Senior Manager, American Operations

"Verst has a commitment to the Toyota business practices and works to achieve common goals."

Nick Duwell, Senior Production Analyst

"Verst had both the shrink equipment and the specialized expertise we needed to get our spoonables product line to market in record time. Their automated system applied the redesigned shrink sleeve labels onto our Miracle Whip products in a fraction of the time it would have taken us to do it in-house - with no capital equipment cost for Kraft Foods and virtually no waste. They streamlined the entire contract decorating process."

Confidentiality Protected, Senior Manager of Packaging Procurement

“They are easy to work with and their communication is great. They do what they say they will do.”

Maureen M, VP Logistics

“Verst provides an accurate, cost-effective, and timely operation.”

Harold P., Director of Transportation

“They have great rapport with our people, as well as extensive knowledge and experience”

Jack C., Director of Logistics
