WINNIPEG, Man. – Manitoulin Transport announced today that it has bought Jomac Transport of Winnipeg, Man. in order to build on its coverage throughout the province after purchasing Smooth Freight of Brandon Man. in November last year.
“Nothing says commitment to a region like providing complete coverage and by acquiring Jomac we now have Manitoba covered,” said Don Goodwill, president, Manitoulin Transport. “Jomac was very appealing to us because of their strong customer relationships, high quality of service, disciplined approach to operations, and because they have a company culture similar to our own.”
The company will absorb all of Jomac’s employees and assets.
“We believe our customers and employees will be in good hands with Manitoulin,” said Wes MacLean, president, Jomac Transport. “This merge will certainly benefit companies in Manitoba as Manitoulin can provide more extensive coverage and services to help bring their business to the next level.”
Gord Smith, CEO of Manitoulin Group of Companies commented: “We said a few years ago that we were committed to rounding out our services and reach in Western Canada, and we made good on that commitment, Not only can customers in the region send and receive shipments quickly and reliably with Manitoulin Transport, they also benefit from being able to access the full global suite of transportation and logistics services through the Manitoulin Group of Companies.”
