Andy completes its largest real estate acquisition

Montreal, March 28, 2019 — Andy is pleased to announce today the acquisition of a new terminal located at 12321-12329 Métropolitain East boulevard in Pointe-aux-Trembles, QC. The facility is Andy’s largest acquisition so far, consisting of over 1,000,000 sq. ft. of land, 10,000 sq. ft of office space, 25,000 sq. ft of cross-dock and 10,000 sq. ft. of garage. In addition to the current occupants, the terminal will become home to Andy Transport and Tristan Cartage.

Following the announcement earlier this month, the new terminal will allow Andy to accommodate its customers’ increased demand, as well as extend and enhance its services. “We are excited to announce the acquisition of this terminal as it represents an excellent opportunity to further develop our footprint in Quebec. It also represents a strategic location for Andy which allows us to get closer to our clients and employees based in the proximity of the East end of Montreal. The acquisition is expected to result in greater operational efficiencies and an increase in market share”, says Andreea Crisan, COO and EVP at Andy.

Andy plans to rapidly occupy most of the vacant space available. “This acquisition was driven by many factors, including the request of our workforce living in the proximity of the terminal and wishing to reduce their time spent in traffic. The location of the site will allow us to realign some of our operations, reduce our fuel consumption as well as increase our organization’s efforts to reduce our environmental footprint”, says Ilie Crisan, President of Andy.

The acquisition is part of Andy’s strategic growth plan, which aims to strengthen its position in the East end of the Island of Montreal. “We are thankful to our financial partner, Roynat Capital, for trusting us with this strategic achievement”, says Golan Moryoussef, CFO and VP Sales of Andy.

Montreal, March 7, 2019 –– Andy Transport is pleased to release its asset acquisition plan for 2019. Following last year’s purchase of sixty-two (62) Volvo VNL 760 2019 units, Andy Transport continues the expansion of its fleet with a purchase order of 100 new Volvo VNL 760 2020 tractors with Le Centre du Camion Ste-Marie Inc. and approximately 200 new Manac trailers, resulting in an annual investment of over $25 million.

Andreea Crisan, EVP and Chief Operating Officer of Andy explains: “We listen to our clients’ needs and we are uniquely placed to help them achieve their growth plans. In fact, it is our corporate culture that differentiates us in a marketplace that is facing a major labor shortage.”

“Safety has always been a core value of Andy. All new purchases are equipped with Volvo Active Driver Assist (VADA including Bendix Wingman Fusion), a safety system that combines camera, radar sensors to detect metallic objects and vehicles that are stationary in front of the tractor and to automatically engage the brakes if the driver cannot react”, adds Ilie Crisan, President of Andy.

“Expected as of May 2019, we look forward to the integration of VADA/Bendix and ISAAC – our partner of choice for telemetry, communication and tracking. This integration will offer Business Intelligence to support better decision making and take us one step closer to our commitment to road safety and our drivers’ well-being”, outlines Andreea Crisan.

“We thank all our partners for supporting us in our growth as well as for their commitment to continuously improve their products and services”, adds Golan Moryoussef, CFO.
