ITASCA, ILLINOIS (August 6, 2013) – With today’s opening of the company’s newest international office in Toronto, Ontario, global expansion continues to be the defining theme for AIT Worldwide Logistics.

Burazin added, “I’m thrilled to be part of an organization that, at the very core, is built on a tradition of family values.”

“The establishment of this location in the commercial and financial center of the United States’ largest trading partner is an integral step in our expansion strategy,” said AIT’s Executive Vice President, Ray Fennelly. “We are ecstatic to have a true industry professional in Branko supporting our growth and our customers in the region.”

Vaughn Moore, President and CEO of AIT commented, “Our company places a high value on the vast experience that Branko brings to the AIT family and we offer him our warmest welcome.
