Bulk commodity hauler RTL-Westcan, the Canadian subsidiary of The Kenan Advantage Group (KAG), recently completed the acquisition of Les Distributions Carl Beaulac, a Quebec, Canada-based carrier that has specialized in hauling petroleum, chemicals, aggregates and hot products for more than 30 years.

“Beaulac Transport has built a strong, solid reputation in the transportation industry based on its hands-on, customer-focused approach to its operations,” said Grant Mitchell, KAG’s chief operating officer. “They have been a long-standing leader in our industry by always putting their customers, employees and safety first.

“We believe our two companies are a perfect fit as we share the same core values ​​and future goals. ”

As part of the transaction, co-owner Carl Beaulac will join RTL-Westcan and oversee all hauling operations east of Ontario, where the company looks to strengthen its growing presence in Eastern Canada. Additionally, 97 drivers, 11 maintenance professionals and 19 administrative personnel will join Westcan.

The company also acquired two additional facilities in Quebec, and expanded its fleet by 79 tractors and 92 trailers, KAG said.

“On behalf of myself and my team at Les Distributions Carl Beaulac, we are proud to be a new member of the RTL-Westcan family,” Beaulac said. “We will continue to provide excellent service to our customers and add new arrows in our quiver in order to be even more competitive and diversified.”

Added Mitchell: “We are excited to have Carl and the entire Beaulac team join our North American team.

“This a great opportunity for both organizations.”
