Montreal, November 29, 2018 — Andy, an asset-based transportation, logistics, warehousing, and fleet management group of private companies, is proud to announce the acquisition of its first Ontario transportation terminal located at 665 Weaver Road, in Windsor and consisting of approximately 500,000 sq. ft.

The newly acquired terminal will allow Andy to position itself in the Ontario market, improve operational efficiencies, and extend its offering to its customers. “We saw an immense potential and our vision is to develop it into a fully-serviced Andy terminal, opening many positions over the next months. We look forward to working with the local municipality, authorities and community”, says Andreea Crisan, COO and EVP at Andy.

The terminal is 6 km away from the current Windsor-Detroit bridge and less than 3 km away from the future bridge. “We have acquired the terminal and are making development plans with our drivers in mind. It will become an important hub for our operations and clients, but also a comfortable resting site for our drivers”, says Ilie Crisan, President of Andy.

This acquisition is part of Andy’s growth plan, an answer to the company’s strategic direction to position itself in the Ontario market. “We are thankful to our legal and financial partners for their continuous support and trust”, says Golan Moryoussef, CFO of Andy.

Andy announces the official launch of its new business venture: Tristan Fleet Management

tristan logoMontreal, 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.”
