Transcourt Joins Industry Leaders at Tank Truck Week
Oaklville, November 19th, 2015 – Transcourt Tank Leasing joined for the first time other industry leaders at Tank Truck Week in Houston, Texas, November 11 to 13, 2015 at the George R. Brown Convention Center and Hilton-Americas Houston. Tank Truck Week is the largest tank truck industry event in North America and Transcourt’s presence at this event signals that the Canadian leader in leasing and long-term rental of liquid and dry bulk tank trailers is serious in its endeavors to penetrate the U.S.A. market.
“We opened our first American office in Illinois last spring and we intend to open two other offices in Houston and New Orleans to better serve our customers”, stated Robert Pahanich, Vice-President Business Development – U.S.A. at Transcourt. “Our goal is to offer top quality equipment and a customer experience that is second to none to become the supplier of choice for carriers and bulk shippers looking for tank trailers.”
This year, Tank Truck Week featured 250 000 square feet of exhibit space, conferences and workshops covering a wide range of topics from maintenance and safety to tank cleaning and more as well as the latest equipment and technologies. One of the most popular items at the event was a concurrent US Department of Transportation (DOT) Cargo Tank Test and Inspection workshop. Visitors and potential customers at Tank Truck Week were interested in Transcourt’s customized approach – offering business solutions that encompass both operational and financial aspects to meet the specific needs of each client, no matter how big or how small the project is.
As the Houston event opened, the organizers did not forget that November 11th is Veterans Day in the United States (Remembrance Day in Canada), a day that marks the signing of the armistice which ended World War I. The anniversary is celebrated annually on this date and a special homage was paid to veterans and those who gave their lives in WWI and the various wars and conflicts since then. A very special tank truck was exhibited on the floor and visitors did not hesitate to stop for a moment of silence as they walked pass the painted truck.
