KINGSTON, Ont. -- Tallman Truck Centres threw a major party Sept. 14, to celebrate 40 years in business and reward the staff that made it possible.
Employees from the various Tallman locations were shuttled in to Kingston for the event and put up in a local hotel. The original owner, Gerry Tallman, was on-hand, as well as his son Kevin, who now serves as president.
The celebration was held at the K-Rock Centre in Kingston. Gerry Tallman said the party was the company’s way of giving back to the company’s employees for their loyalty and dedication.
Tallman Truck Centre locations were closed Saturday to ensure everyone could attend. Entertainment was provided by Eddie and the Stingrays, who crooned guests with music from the 50s and 60s. More than 400 employees were on-hand, representing all eight Tallman dealerships.
It’s back to business as usual Monday morning, officials said.
