Trailcon Leasing to build new facilities in Edmonton and Calgary
BRAMPTON, ONTARIO – (GLOBE NEWSWIRE - Feburary 6, 2018)
With business booming in Western Canada, Trailcon Leasing Inc. announces plans to build new facilities in Edmonton and Calgary to support current and future growth. Construction of the state-of-the-art facilities will begin in May of this year, with completion scheduled for Q2 2019.
“Trailcon has been growing at such a rate that we have outgrown our existing facilities in Alberta,” says President Al Boughton. “The new buildings will allow our staff to continue to meet and exceed the expectations of our expanding roster of customers.”
Both facilities, identical in design, will measure 20,000 square feet, with another 5,000 square feet available for future expansion. They will feature eight trailer bays, with space for an additional three. Large, secure fenced-in yards with truck gates will accommodate approximately 120 trailers with ample parking space for customer rentals, new leases, fleet maintenance and repairs.
Designed to maximize energy savings and minimize their carbon footprint, the facilities will include: LED lighting with motion detectors; use of recycled materials in furniture and other fixtures; high levels of insulation; and polished concrete floors for high-traffic areas.
“No detail has been overlooked in an effort to provide our staff with an environment that is efficient, comfortable, and sustainable,” says Nick Reid, Calgary branch manager.
The facilities also take into account the comfort and convenience of drivers and technicians. There will be a separate entrance for drivers, with washroom, sitting area and vending machines, while technicians will have a separate washroom, locker room, and shower facilities.
“I am very excited about these upcoming moves,” says Dave Ambrock, Edmonton branch manager. “Not only will the new surroundings benefit staff and customers, but they will allow drivers to be treated with the respect that they deserve, by providing them with a comfortable space to recharge and relax.”
Trailcon has had a facility in Edmonton since 2007, and in Calgary since 2012.
