SAGINAW, MI – Focused Logistics, a division of Stevens Worldwide Van Lines, has moved its headquarters to a new office on Woodward Avenue in downtown Detroit. Headed by new General Manager Bob Brisebois, the new office location brings the company’s warehousing and logistics services to the heart of Detroit while helping to revitalize the growing downtown area.
“We’re very pleased to have a physical presence in Detroit,” Brisebois said. “We’ll maintain our current location in Waterford, but our new Detroit headquarters will give us additional presence in this rapidly growing market and make our service more flexible and convenient.”
As the General Manager, Brisebois is responsible for oversight of Focused Logistics’ operations, including sales, project management, expenses and change orders. He works closely with the sales and project management teams to ensure client satisfaction. Brisebois began his new role on June 2, while maintaining his existing role as Vice President of Stevens’ Records Storage division. The resources and nationwide network of that division complement Focused Logistics’ growing operations.
Focused Logistics offers warehousing, delivery, installation and freight management of furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E) as well as operating supplies and merchandise equipment (OS&E). The company services clients in the hospitality sector, handling the delivery and installation of furniture and related items for renovations and new builds of hotels, apartment complexes, and other residential facilities. Focused Logistics uses the wide network of Stevens agents as well as other partner agencies to coordinate activities across the nation.
“We have jobs going on in many states in addition to our Michigan work,” Brisebois said. “We’re working on a project in Boca Raton, Florida, and just starting a hotel project in Cleveland. Meanwhile, we just finished a refurb job for an apartment complex and clubhouse in Ann Arbor. Thanks to our network of partners, we can work across the country.”
Brisebois sees the potential for Focused Logistics to expand into complementary industries. “We have the potential to help with hospitals or other care facilities, restaurants, retail organizations, even casinos. For any operation that would have equipment to be delivered and installed, we have the capability to assist.”
