SASKATOON, Sask. — Truckload food hauler G. Edwards Enterprises has been acquired by Day & Ross Transportation Group, the companies have announced.
“Day & Ross is committed to the growth of its business throughout North America for the benefit of our current and future customers, and this acquisition will place us closer to that goal,” says John Doucet, president and CEO. “With the addition of Edwards we are able to make a number of enhancements across our group of businesses. We gain a modern terminal in Saskatoon which opens up new lanes in western Canada for our truckload network and we gain capacity to grow our LTL, small package and dedicated businesses.”
Jeff Edwards will remain with the company, joining the Day & Ross management team, the company claims.
“As an owner and key decision-maker at Edwards, Jeff’s knowledge and enthusiasm for the business will be a significant asset as we work to leverage the full potential of this new opportunity,” said Doucet.
G. Edwards Enterprises was founded in 1977 by Garry Edwards. Today, it primarily hauls produce, meat and other fresh and frozen food items. Day & Ross says it will integrate its newest acquisition with its Fastrax division, uniting the capacity of both businesses for future growth.
