Posted on December 10, 2019

BRAMPTON, Ontario, Oct. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — October 1 and October 4 were banner days as Trailcon Leasing Inc. held open houses to celebrate its new state-of-the-art facilities in Edmonton and Calgary, respectively.

Close to 200 guests attended the two events, both of which offered plenty of food and beverages, music, and tours of each facility. Trailcon co-founder Al Boughton travelled from the company’s head office in Brampton, Ont., to both open houses. “These are auspicious occasions for Trailcon Leasing, and we want to share them with the customers and colleagues who have brought us to where we are today,” he said. “These facilities are a reflection of Trailcon’s steady growth and bright future.”

Joining Boughton at the Edmonton open house were branch project manager Dave Ambrock, Trailcon president Jerry Brown, and Mike Krell, vice-president, sales & marketing. “It is rewarding to see this major project come to fruition,” said Brown. “Our customers – both current and future – will reap the benefits of the exceptional service we can offer in this new location.” The Edmonton facility opened in January.

The Calgary open house was hosted by branch manager Nick Reid, along with Boughton and Krell from head office. “Since moving into this facility in July, I have been very excited by the opportunities it provides to meet the needs of our growing customer base,” said Reid.

“These two facilities ensure that Trailcon has the necessary infrastructure and staff in place to accommodate continued growth in the western provinces while still providing our clients with the superior service level on which Trailcon has built its reputation,” adds Krell.

Both facilities are 20,000 square feet in size, with space for future expansion. Each facility has eight trailer bays with room for an additional three, and has the yard capacity to accommodate approximately 120 trailers.
