Bess Tank Lines Ltd has acquired Cooney's Farm Services Ltd, High River AB, Canada. Bess Tank Lines is a family-owned specialized bulk carrier based in Calgary AB operating across Canada and the United States.
Founded in 1972, Cooney's is a well-managed and established family-owned chemical hauling business with a solid reputation, according to Ben Rouillard, executive vice-president of B&B Group/Bess Tank Lines. "This strategic acquisition is a perfect fit for Bess Tank Lines, whose foundations are built on family values, safety, and customer service,” he says. “I would like to welcome the professional staff of Cooney's, including Doug Coonfer, who will remain the operations manager."
Rouillard adds: "I would also like to wish Dayle Ann Coonfer all the best on her retirement. Dayle Ann has been a pioneer in the Alberta tank business and a mentor for a lot of us in the industry."
