GUELPH, Ont. -- MacKinnon Transport has announced it will construct a new terminal for its flatbed trucking operations, while Altruck International will move into its existing facility.
The announcement was made today by Evan MacKinnon, president and CEO of MacKinnon Transport. He said construction of the new facility will begin next year.
The new terminal will be located on the same 20-acre parcel of land from which MacKinnon operates today.
Altruck International, meanwhile, will consolidate its two Guelph operations at MacKinnon’s current facility on Laird Road in the south end of Guelph.
For a period of time, MacKinnon Transport and Altruck International will share the same facility while the new MacKinnon building is constructed, MacKinnon said.
“Our current truck maintenance facility is ideally designed and situated for an expanding truck dealership and leasing operation,” MacKinnon said. “Both MacKinnon Transport and the Guelph International dealership have had a long-standing relationship that expands over 50-plus years, which enhanced our ability to structure such an arrangement.”
