They represent Volvo heavy trucks, and Hino medium trucks, and specialize in the service and repair of all makes of medium, heavy-duty trucks, highway tractors, and trailers.
“Closing this deal is a great way to kick off the New Year and is more evidence that 2020 will be another strong year for business investment and growth in Chatham-Kent,” said Stuart McFadden, Director of Chatham-Kent Economic Development, via a media release. “The visibility of the Expressway Trucks location from the 401 will be important for both their success and will also provide another landmark to showcase our highly successful business park.”
Specifics about the number of jobs to be created and completion date are yet to be determined and will be made available as soon as they are finalized.
Shaun Howard, General Manager with Expressway Trucks has said, “We are planning for the future by making this investment.”
McFadden added, “Last year we saw investments by both new developers and, just as importantly, reinvestment by existing businesses. It is always a win for the community when our existing companies allocate new dollars to growing locally.”
