With the recent launch of the TrailerCare program, I am joining Trailcon at a great time of growth and opportunity.”
Jamie will support Jerry Brown – President, together with the rest of the leadership team. “I’ve known Jamie for many years and I am excited that he has accepted this opportunity”, Brown said. “His experience, dedication to the industry, competitive and personable nature make him a great fit for our organization. Trailcon’s growth and success relies on continuous improvement, collaboration and national alignment; we are all looking forward to have Jamie on board to lead these initiatives.”
Trailcon is one of Canada’s leaders in rental, leasing, and service of trailers and intermodal equipment. In 1992, Co- Founder and past President Al Boughton started the business as a one-man operation with just a few trailers; today Trailcon has five locations, a fleet of over 10,000 units, a booming rental operation, over 100 trailer technicians, and an unmatched mobile repair fleet. In 2020 Trailcon launched TrailerCare, a program where licensed technicians run regular and preventative maintenance on trailer fleets of all sizes, including medium and large private fleets backed by industry leading technology.
Trailcon Leasing is excited to announce that, effective November 2, it is relocating its British Columbia branch from Surrey to a new location at 7867 Express Street, Unit 112, Burnaby.
The new site is a full-service maintenance facility. Our mobile mechanics will continue performing repairs in customer yards, as well as over-the-road emergency repairs, 24/7. The B.C. branch will also offer Trailcon’s recently launched TrailerCare fleet maintenance and management program, available to all customers, whether they lease Trailcon’s trailers or own their own fleet.
The new Burnaby facility reinforces our commitment to the market and growth of the TrailerCare program, and allows for expansion in the Greater Vancouver area.
The company also welcomes Christopher Hilton as the new Operations Manager of the B.C. branch. “I am excited to join the Trailcon team and look forward to growing our business in the Vancouver area,” he says. “This new facility will allow us to not only maintain the exceptional standard of service for which Trailcon is known, but to enhance it.”
Trailcon has operated a facility in B.C. since 2016.
