Trimac buys B&B/Bess Tank Lines

Trimac Transportation has declared it has procured B&B/Bess Tank Lines, a family-run mass transportation organization with roots in Quebec and Alberta.

B&B was established in 1976, and with Bess Tank Lines, works in excess of 110 tractors and 240 trailers out of five areas in Val Joli, Que., St-Hyacinthe, Que., Hamilton, Ont., High River, Alta., and Calgary, Alta. Ben Rouillard, president and CEO, will keep on managing every day activities and B&B and Bess Tank Lines will keep on working under their own character. “We are excited to have B&B/Bess Tank Lines as part of the Trimac Family. There is a great cultural fit between the two companies, with safety and service as core values,” said Matt Faure, president and CEO of Trimac. “They have a loyal customer base which has been a result of strong leadership, unmatched service level and their commitment to excellence. We look forward to continuing the positive relationships that have been built over the years. With its extensive network across North America, Trimac will provide B&B/Bess Tank Lines the additional resources required to accelerate their growth.”

Rouillard added: “B&B/Bess Tank Lines has been proudly operated by my family for 43 years, and our journey very much parallels the success of Trimac and the McCaig family. We are thrilled that our employees and customers will continue to receive the same commitment that they have come to rely upon. This will provide our team access to the experience, network and resources that we require to continue our growth and evolution.”
