GUELPH, ON. — MacKinnon Transport announced yesterday they'll be building a new terminal designed with the sole purpose to support their growing flatbed operation. And they'll be getting a few new roommates.

President and CEO Evan MacKinnon, said that construction is set to begin next year. The new facility will be located on the same swath of land that their current facility is located on.

MacKinnon will also be welcoming Altruck International Truck Centres, which is consolidating their two Guelph operations and relocating to MacKinnon's Laird Rd. facility at the south end of Guelph, a strategic move that puts Altruck closer the 401 corridor.

MacKinnon said that both MacKinnon Transport and Altruck International will co-occupy the same facility for a period of time while MacKinnon designs and builds their new facility. "Our current Truck Maintenance Facility is ideally designed and situated for an expanding Truck Dealership and Leasing operation. Both MacKinnon Transport and the Guelph International Dealership have had a long-standing relationship that expands over 50 plus-years, which enhanced our ability to structure such an arrangement."

Altruck also opened a new facility just off the QEW in Burlington, ON. this week.
