KBXCambridge Bay, Nunavut (March 4, 2014) – Mr. David Omilgoitok, President of KBX is pleased to announce the incorporation of Kitnuna Braden-Burry Expediting Ltd, “KBX”.

Headquartered in Cambridge Bay, NU, KBX brings together the strengths of two great northern companies with over 50 years of experience in logistics and supply chain management, Kitnuna and BBE. Kitnuna Corporation is owned jointly by Kitikmeot Corporation and Nunasi Corporation. BBE is wholly owned by NorTerra Inc.

As development in the Kitikmeot Region advances, the need for full supply chain services has been amplified and developing that service is a common goal of Kitnuna
and BBE. Well executed logistics will be a major factor dictating the success of projects in the region and their success is essential to the economic and social development of the Kitikmeot.

Allen Cole, President and CEO, Kitnuna Corporation, “KBX will bring a lot of experience and capacity to the table as a logistics solution provider which has been recognized by project proponents with whom we have discussed combining our resources.”

Heather Stewart, President BBE, “We have worked together in different capacities over the years and this venture was an easy next step to formalize our relationship for the benefit of our clients and our shareholders. Mr. Omilgoitok’s vision here was instrumental.”

Collectively the enterprise brings together over one hundred fifty employees and locations across the Arctic and Southern Canada.
