Who Is AEL Span

AEL Span is an integral part of the AEL Holdings Network of Companies. John Henderson, a veteran, is the majority shareholder of all companies with this network. The companies in the AEL Holdings Network are all Minority Business Enterprises. Although each company within the AEL Holdings Network has its own particular niche in the supply chain management field, all of us focus on bringing innovation and bottom-line benefits to our clients. The phrase “Excellence through Passion” gives meaning to our vision that our culture of innovation and quality is driven by our people.
In 2007, AEL Span LLC was formed as an MBE from a when a John Henderson purchased as small portion of the former well known, quality driven organization named Span International that had more than 20 years of experience working with electronics, warehouse and distribution, and supply chain management. At this time, former Span International Vice President, John Henderson, wanted to build a supply chain solutions organization driven by quality and innovation. AEL Span has since expanded to include 8 facilities throughout North America.
Since 2007, AEL Span LLC has rapidly expanded from one facility near Detroit, Michigan to six sites in North America. During this time, We have also focused on expanding our services beyond warehouse and distribution to be a full service supply chain supplier by adding transportation services.  And through AEL partner companies, we can expand our services beyond standard 3PL operations to specialized Electronic Distribution and Manufacturing.
We are more than a service provider. Our people will drive toward our clients’ success and in AEL Span, our clients find a partner to help them succeed in their business goals.
Our goal, our mission, is simply to execute supply chain services consistently above expectations. This is accomplished through standard quality processes combined with the innovative spirit of our people and the drive to fulfill our obligations to our clients.
