  • And the winner of this year’s Charity donation is…

    Well the votes are in and we have a winner! McMaster Children's hospital was selected as the winner for this year’s charity donations. Therefore we will be splitting the money between McMaster Children's hospital and the Pediatrics department of the North Bay Regional Health Center. McMaster Children's Hospital serves both our Hagersville staff as well our Mississauga staff so 2/3 of the money will be going to them. The remainder will be presented to the North Bay Regional Health Center for their Women and Children Center.

    We have randomly draw names to determine who will be representing the company to deliver the cheques. To present the cheque to McMaster Children's Hospital we will be sending Paul Jakubicek, Nicole Vanderwal and Dirk Van Ooyen. To present the cheque to North Bay Regional Health Center we will be sending Colin Byham and Clive Sawh.

    We would like to thank everyone for their votes and participation in this process!!

  • Announcement for TSG

    We are starting to see a lot of successful activity in our Transportation Solutions Group.  This is a result of the entire TSG and sales groups efforts towards this new business unit.  Because we are starting to see some of those past efforts come to fruition we have a requirement to put a more concentrated focus/resources on the Raildeck/TOFC side of our business.  As of March 1st, the brokerage and logistics will now report into our sales group and will break off from reporting into the TSG side of our business.  Scott MacFarlane will play a lead role in this division reporting to Peter Maillet. Colin Byham will report to Scott Macfarlane.  All other aspects of the business remain the same and the focus is to continue to grow that side of our business.

     Eric Rose and Paul Jakubicek will continue to focus their efforts on the many opportunities we have on our Raildeck/TOFC business. 

     This is exciting news for us as this group has been very successful in building growth and momentum in this business and this organizational structure change will allow for even more focus on these growth opportunities.  Please join me in congratulating this group for their successes and efforts.
