Trimac Transportation recently acquired Feldspar Trucking, a Spruce Pine, North Carolina-based company that specializes in the bulk transportation of feldspar, sand, clay, and minerals crucial to the ceramics and glass industries.

Feldspar was founded as Norris Trucking with one truck in 1967.

“We are thrilled to welcome Feldspar to the Trimac family,” Matt Faure, Trimac president and CEO, said in a news release. “Their dedication to service with safety aligns perfectly with our values. Together and with the help of Feldspar’s leaders, we’re poised to enhance our bulk transportation services even further, supporting our customers and communities with unparalleled excellence.”

Feldspar’s team includes over 60 dedicated company drivers supported by broker carriers, office staff, and shop employees, Trimac said.

The decision to join forces with Feldspar comes as a strategic move to enhance Trimac’s customer service offerings and expand its geographic reach, the carrier added. By aligning with the local expertise of Feldspar, Trimac aims to solidify its position as a key carrier servicing the region’s growing mining industry.

As Trimac and Feldspar embark on this new chapter together, teams are excited about the opportunities for continued growth, innovation, and excellence in service delivery.

“As a family-owned company deeply rooted in our values of integrity and service, joining forces with Trimac marks an exciting chapter in our journey,” Feldspar’s Jim Norris said. “This partnership not only ensures the continued growth and success of Feldspar Trucking but also opens doors to new opportunities and expanded horizons for our team and clients alike.”
