WROXETER,ON.-Come Canada Day, you will see no more Celadon Canada trucks. On July 1, the merger of Celadon and Wroxeter, ON.-based Hyndman Transport will be completed.
“We have come to realize the strength of the Hyndman name in Canada,” commented President and CEO of the Indianapolis-based Celadon Group Paul Will. “Hyndman has always promoted and supported a family atmosphere for their drivers and staff. This merger reinforces thae core value of the company.”
The Celadon Group first established its operations in Canada with the purchase of Gerth Transport Ltd. in May of 1998. In 2000, the name was changed to Celadon Canada. Two years ago, Celadon acquired Hyndman Transport and operated Hyndman as an entity separated from Celadon Canada. Later in 2013, the Celadon Groups acquired both Hoss Carthage and Yanke Transfer and merged these companies into its operations in Canada.
“Our success over the years stems from the strong loyalty and dedicated service of our driver fleet,” stated 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,” added Campbell. “And our drivers will continue to benefit from our unrelenting focus on technology and safety.”
