Trimac set to buy Fortress
Originally published:  02/02/2012
Trimac Transportation Ltd, the Canadian wing of the North American road tanker operator, has entered into a letter of intent to acquire a majority interest in the parent company of Fortress Transport. Canada-headquartered Fortress provides bulk deliveries of liquid chemicals, petroleum products, and dry chemicals throughout central Canada and the US. The assets of Fortress include 54 tractors and 130 trailers.
“Fortress has been recognised as a premium carrier in the chemical industry for a very long time,” says Ed Malysa, president/COO of Trimac. “We believe this business will provide excellent synergies and growth opportunities in our chemical operations. Fortress’ key assets include a team of professional drivers with a similar safety culture and high operating standards as ours, so we are thrilled to have them on Trimac’s team.”
