Westcan Bulk Transport (“Westcan”) has completed the acquisition of the petroleum business and operating assets of Chapple Fuels Ltd., based out of Chatham, Ontario. The transaction closed on November 8, 2017.
Chapple Fuels Ltd. has been family-owned and operated since 1950. Wayne and Darrell Chapple have continued to build on their parents’ founding vision with their hands-on and personal approach to customer service and safety. Chapple’s commitment to its employees and customers aligns closely with Westcan’s core values and emphasis on our People, Service, Safety, and Operational Excellence.
This acquisition adds 29 tractors and 31 trailers to Westcan’s fleet and complements our existing bulk fuel business in Ontario as we strive to grow our operations with quality partners. We look forward to welcoming Chapple’s team of 49 employees, including 44 professional drivers, to our Ontario operation.
