KITCHENER, Ont. — Celadon Canada has announced it will officially adopt the Hyndman name as of July 1.
“We have come to realize the strength of the Hyndman name in Canada,” said Paul Will, president and CEO of the Celadon Group. “Hyndman has always promoted and supported a family atmosphere for their drivers and staff. This merger reinforces that core value of the company.”
The companies are currently in the process of becoming a single entity under the Hyndman name.
Celadon set up shop in Canada with the purchase of Gerth Transport in May 1998. In 2000, it adopted the Celadon Canada name. It has since purchased Hyndman Transport and operated that company as a separate entity.
In 2013, Celadon bought Yanke Group as well as Hoss Cartage.
“Our success over the years stems from the strong loyalty and dedicated service of our driver fleet,” said Mike Campbell, president of Hyndman. “In addition, we have always been fortunate to have great relationships established with our many customers throughout Canada. We will remain focused on providing each and every one of our customers with unparalleled service. And our drivers will continue to benefit from our unrelenting focus on technology and safety.”
