SAINT-LAURENT, Quebec – Andy Transport is moving from Salaberry-de-Valleyfield to Saint-Zotique, Quebec.
Andy’s terminal in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield has been its head office since 2011 and has been the home terminal to over 100 staff who were local and regional residents.
“When we purchased and moved into the Salaberry-de-Valleyfield terminal in 2011, Highway 30 did not yet exist, and Andy had merely a fleet of 50 trucks. As the company grew rapidly and the activities diversified, the site just was not enough anymore in terms of space and facilities and we were forced to grow in other geographical areas”, says Ilie Crisan, the company’s president.
In 2019 the company acquired a new terminal in Pointe-aux-Trembles, Quebec. At the time it was the company’s largest acquisition to date, consisting of over 1,000,000 sq. ft. of land, 10,000 sq. ft of office space, 25,000 sq. ft of cross-dock and 10,000 sq. ft. of garage. The terminal housed Andy Transport and Tristan Cartage.
“We are very grateful for all the local support that we have received, and we would like to take the opportunity to thank the Valleyfield community for allowing us to grow together. We hope that, with our move, the traffic in the area will decrease significantly and will provide a better quality of life to its residents”, added Andreea Crisan, EVP at Andy Transport, who is expected to resume her activities at the end of her maternity leave, beginning of next year.
“The new St-Zotique terminal is strategically located right on Highway 20W, eight kilometres from Highway 401. A deliberate choice on the Quebec-Ontario corridor, it will offer better growth opportunities along the way”, concluded Remus Arbanasi, Interim COO at Andy Transport.
A privately held company founded in 2001, Andy Transport operates a fleet of over 400 power units and 800 trailers throughout Canada and the United States. In 2019, it was the eighth largest fleet in Quebec and 44th in Canada.
