F T Silfies Inc, Nazareth PA, has purchased the assets of Gensimore Trucking, Pleasant Gap PA.
“We are very excited to have purchased Gensimore, a family- owned dry bulk carrier since 1922 in the State College PA area,” said Randy Sheeler, Silfies president and chief executive officer. “The company has been operated since 1922 by four Gensimore brothers, all second generation family members of the founder, Calvin Gensimore.”
The acquisition will add 50 tractors and 97 trailers to Silfies’ fleet.
Sheeler said the acquisition allows Silfies to expand its aggregate hauling capabilities to include lime, pebble lime, glass stone, and fly ash on high cube trailers, as well as hazardous waste.
Bruce Donovan, recently appointed Silfies vice-president and general manager, will be leading the transition team at Gensimore and will head up that operation along with Bradley Gensimore who has been retained as the terminal manager.
