We are proud to announce that we have expanded our pickup and delivery service for the CCC fleet to the US and at the beginning of November 2015, covering areas such as New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Chicago. To accomplish this, we have added 2 new three-compartment bulk tankers to handle the US pickups, giving us the ability to pick up heated products along with solvent products.
In addition, in January, we added another bulk Driver for our US fleet operation to give us the ability to cover more US suppliers in order to meet demands of our Logistics department.
With the acquisition of the chemical distribution business of APCO in September 2015, our solvent business in Ontario has grown. As a consequence, we have recently added 3 quad axle tankers to our solvent fleet in Brampton. This gives us the ability to manage the majority of our solvent business with our own fleet. These quad tankers have multi compartments and provide us not only with more opportunities to deliver to small bulk customers, but also to replenish our two tanker farms at the same time.
Starting February 29, we are adding a five-compartment quad axle tanker to our fleet to expand our solvent deliveries in the province of Québec and eastern Ontario, for servicing small bulk customers and replenishing our tank farm in Montreal.
