Chambers Makes Executive Appointments
VERNON, B.C. -- John Huntley has been promoted to vice president at DCT Chambers Trucking Ltd., and Ryan Chambers has been named general manager, according to company president David Chambers. These appointments provide for stability, continuity, and strategic planning, he adds.
Huntley's background, experience, and track record -- he joined DCT early in 1988 -- provide for corporate direction for the existing operations and for managing growth, Chambers says.
Ryan Chambers had first-hand knowledge of the company gained from literally growing up in the business, then married that with a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of Victoria. He has managed the Glen Transport Division and acted as assistant general manager for the organization.
Founded in 1964 and still family owned, DCT Chambers specializes in transport services for the forest products industry and more recently, mining, chemicals, petroleum, and construction materials. It has one of the largest wood-fibre fleets in the province, and a history of developing technology for trailer designs and operating systems.
The Chambers Group has facilities and supervision throughout the Pacific Northwest, in both Canada and the U.S. Among its subsidiary fleets is Langley Freight Lines which hauls lumber and panel board as well as construction materials such as steel and pipe. Glen Transport operates throughout southeastern B.C. and Alberta. The company's Vancouver Island operation manufactures wood chips for the pulp and paper industry.
