Montreal, September 11, 2018 — Andy, an asset-based transportation, logistics and warehousing group of companies, is proud to announce the official launch of its newest business venture: Tristan Fleet Management. The new company operates several heavy truck and trailer maintenance centers and provides personalized fleet management services, such as preventive maintenance, equipment inspection, as well as general mechanic and collision repairs.
“Tristan Fleet Management is a natural expansion of the maintenance and repair services that have historically been provided to Andy Transport and independent owner operators” explains Andreea Crisan, COO and EVP. “The growth of Andy Transport’s fleet resulted in a strategic physical network of maintenance and repair centers. The expertise and dedication of its skilled workforce is now offered to third parties.”
Tristan’s customer base is composed of small and medium size fleets. Nearly 200 clients have entrusted Tristan with the planning of their fleet’s PM and repairs, and benefit from Tristan’s 24/7 road assistance, towing, and road service needs all over North America.
“When operating a fleet, managing a shop and an in-house maintenance program can become an overwhelming burden and an expensive cost-center” adds Ilie Crisan, President. “We want to help fleet owners focus on their core business, while we propose a personalized fleet management solution which includes opening a new shop to cater to their needs in a strategic location, operating their existing shops, and giving them access to our network and services.”
Building on the reputation and strength of relationships established within each business unit of Andy’s group, the new brand identity for Tristan Fleet Management is an opportunity to grow customer awareness and attract the best talent.
Daniel Barbu, Fleet Director, concludes: “We understand the fundamental needs of fleets of all sizes: reduce costs, maximize uptime, and ensure compliance. And we believe that thanks to our dedicated and talented team of mechanics, Tristan is bound to grow its footprint in the province of Quebec.”
A privately held group of companies, Andy combines youthful ideas with depth of experience. Founded in 2001, Andy Transport’s fleet travels all across Canada and the United States. In 2017, it was the 9th largest fleet in Quebec and 58th in Canada. The company was ranked in the PROFIT 500 list of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
Andy strives to provide quality customer service, as well as special attention to its employees and partners.
