The Kenan Advantage Group, Inc. (KAG) has completed the acquisition of Les Distributions Carl Beaulac through its Canadian subsidiary, RTL Westcan.
As part of the transaction, KAG acquired two additional facilities in Quebec and expanded its fleet by 79 tractors and 92 trailers, with RTL-Westcan gaining 97 professional drivers, 11 maintenance professionals and 19 administrative personnel.
Co-owner Carl Beaulac will join the company and will oversee all hauling operations east of Ontario where the company looks to strengthen its growing presence in eastern Canada.
KAG, North America’s largest liquid bulk transporter and logistics provider in the transportation industry, operates through its six operating groups consisting of Merchant Gas (transportation of industrial and specialty gases), Fuels Delivery, Specialty Products, Food Products, KAG Canada (RTL/Westcan) and Logistics.
KAG COO Grant Mitchell said, “Beaulac Transport has built a strong solid reputation in the transportation industry based on its hands-on, customer-focused approach to its operations. 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.”
Quebec-based Beaulac has specialised in hauling petroleum, chemicals, aggregates and hot products for over 30 years.
