Client Spotlight: F. Christiana and Company, Marrero, LA

We are pleased to introduce UCG's longtime VAULT400 client, F. Christiana and Company, a family run food distribution business located in Marrero, Louisiana. This thriving company was founded in 1934 by Nick Christiana Sr., who started the business as an egg packer and wholesale poultry dealer. In 1963, Nick's son Frank purchased the company from his father and renamed it F. Christiana & Company. 

Today, the company employs over 125 people, operates 36 delivery trucks, and the product line has expanded to over 2,000 different items including canned and dry goods, condiments, cheese, paper, and cleaning products, along with a long list of fresh and frozen meat items. 

View F. Christiana's brief overview video
As one of the first companies to open their doors after Hurricane Katrina, they are all too familiar with the devastation that can occur in the event of disaster. In order to protect their business critical data, F. Christiana and Company selected UCG's VAULT400 as their backup solution. 

Recently, F. Christiana added VAULT400 <24-Hour Hardware Disaster Recovery Services. In the event of a disaster, VAULT400 <24-Hour DR Services will provide systems for 30-days while working closely with F. Christiana to ensure business continuity and conduct planning and testing. All DR services are managed by UCG so the client can concentrate on other immediate needs as systems are brought back online.The result is a smooth transition that is transparent to F. Christiana customers, allowing them to continue operating their business as usual.
