75 Years to be exact.
Jules & Sarah Armellini
Through hard work and a commitment to customer satisfaction, their first business, Armellini Express Lines, prospered. Soon, a small fleet of trucks added New England to its service area. In 1953, Armellini began hauling product out of Florida and moved its corporate headquarters to the heart of Florida’s flower-growing region ten years later.
Jules Armellini was always at the forefront of new technology in floral transportation; he contributed to the design of the first “flower specific” refrigeration units for trailers, was the first to use wooden decking to split the trailer to relieve pressure on the flower boxes and promote air circulation, and was also the first to use satellite tracking to pinpoint the position of all trucks.
