MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Totalline Transport officially celebrated the grand opening of its new head office June 16.
The custom built, 330,000 square foot facility is located at 100 Vaughan Valley Blvd, in Vaughan, ON.
A ceremony featuring acrobatic dancers preceded an official ribbon cutting, which was witnessed by Uwe Petroschke, Totalline’s President & C.E.O., Roger Eacock, Totalline’s Vice President and General Manager, David Bradley, President of the Ontario Trucking Association, Paul Bradbury, CEO and Commissioner of Oaths at the Vaughan Chamber of Commerce and some 200 attendees.
The opening of the facility marks the latest phase of Totalline’s national expansion and acquisition strategy, and comes on the heels of the 2003 opening of the expanded Vancouver facility and the commercial partnership with RV Storage and Assembly Co. Ltd. in Mississauga, Ontario.
“Can’t is not in our vocabulary,” said Totalline Transport’s President & C.E.O., Uwe Petroschke. He added that innovation to fit the times and economic climate has always been the company’s strategy, and told CT&L that home delivery may be a future option within the company’s services.
Petroschke said that although the trucking industry is not frequently viewed as such, “it is a vibrant industry with lots of professionalism. I truly enjoy the industry and think it is better than it is perceived to be,” he said.
OTA President David Bradley said that the new facility showed innovation, confidence in the economy and an ability to dream, while Paul Bradbury outlined the importance of the facility to the Vaughan business community and its economy.
