SALABERRY-DE-VALLEYFIELD, Que. – For the second time in six months, Andy Transport has acquired a new maintenance center, this time in Boucherville, Que.
The over 96,000 square foot, 18 bay location is the third to be strategically placed in the proximity of Andy Transport’s terminals in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Montreal and now in Boucherville, each running at full capacity and providing 24-hour full service maintenance.
Andy Transport has also entered into a partnership with Le Centre du Camion Ste-Marie, a distributor of Mack, Volvo and Isuzu.
“Due to the high demand of our clients, we decided to open the first Mack dealership on the South Shore of Montreal,” said Marc Tardif, president of Le Centre du Camion Ste-Marie. “We will be opening a full service dealership with a sales and a service team for Mack, Volvo and Isuzu products.”
Llie Crisan, president of Andy Transport, said the partnership was not just strategic, but also a natural fit.
“They will occupy 12 truck bays and we will occupy the rest of the building,” Crisan said. “It is another big step in our effort to lower our fleet maintenance operating costs, while reducing the commute and downtime of our drivers based out of the Boucherville terminal.”
“This new maintenance center enables us to provide an even better support to our fleet in the South Shore area of Montreal,” added Daniel Barbu, fleet manager of Andy Transport. “The acquisition and operation of a first Andy paint shop represents a key milestone in the maintenance and repair of our fleet. It gives us a competitive edge on the market.”
