For immediate release
Saint-Laurent, November 25, 2020 — Andy Transport announced today the relocation of its operations from Salaberry-de-Valleyfield to Saint-Zotique, Quebec.
Andy’s terminal in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield has been its head office since 2011 and has been the home terminal to over 100 team members who were local and regional residents.
“When we purchased and moved into the Salaberry-de-Valleyfield terminal in 2011, Highway 30 did not yet exist, and Andy had merely a fleet of 50 trucks. As the company grew rapidly and the activities diversified, the site just was not enough anymore in terms of space and facilities and we were forced to grow in other geographical areas”, says Ilie Crisan, President at Andy Transport.
“We are very grateful for all the local support that we have received, and we would like to take the opportunity to thank the Valleyfield community for allowing us to grow together. We hope that, with our move, the traffic in the area will decrease significantly and will provide a better quality of life to its residents”, added Andreea Crisan, EVP at Andy Transport, who is expected to resume her activities at the end of her maternity leave, beginning of next year.
“The new St-Zotique terminal is strategically located right on Highway 20W, 5 miles from Highway 401. A deliberate choice on the Quebec-Ontario corridor, it will offer better growth opportunities along the way”, concluded Remus Arbanasi, Interim COO at Andy Transport.
Andy Transport already took possession of the terminal. “I want to thank everyone who helped us relocate as this involved a lot of planning, workforce and time away from the family”, said Ilie Crisan.
This relocation is another step forward on Andy Transport’s agenda for strategic growth.
