The Kenan Advantage Group (KAG) has completed the acquisition of Paul’s Hauling through its Canadian subsidiary, RTL Westcan.
Based in Manitoba, Paul’s Hauling is a provider of bulk transport services in Western Canada.
As part of the transaction, KAG will acquire 233 tractors, 353 trailers, 192 professional drivers and 112 highly skilled operational personnel.
Grant Mitchell, KAG’s Chief Operating Officer, said, “We have a long history and positive relationship with Paul’s Hauling which was founded by Paul Albrechtsen in 1957. At one point in our past, our two companies fell under the same Canadian ownership.”
“This transaction is a natural fit for us based on the many synergies in our operations such as geographic locations, products hauled, customer base and operating systems.”
Rod Corbett, who joins KAG Canada as Executive Vice-President of Business Administration stated, “Paul’s Hauling and Westcan Bulk were founded and built by Paul Albrechtsen who started his business in Canada with one truck.”
“Paul passed away in 2019 and it was his wish that the two companies be under the same ownership once again. I’m pleased we were able to honour his request. Together, Westcan and Paul’s are stronger and capable of providing even better services to our customers.”
