Tremcar celebrates 60th anniversary
Tank-truck and trailer manufacturer Tremcar is celebrating its 60th anniversary.
A&L Tougas, Tremcar’s predecessor, built its first tank truck dedicated to milk transportation in 1962. The Tougas brothers, Alde and Leo Tougas, started out welding equipment in their father’s blacksmith shop in Sabrevois, Québec, Canada.
The family’s shop previously built carts for transporting milk cans. Then a customer named Léon Darsigny, who hailed from Napierville, Québec, asked the Tougas brothers to build a tank dedicated to milk transportation, sparking their interest in bulk tanks. But, having never made this type of tank before, they decided to visit a future competitor in Ontario to see how it made its equipment, and the modern Tremcar was born.
In recognition of its milestone, Tremcar has introduced a special edition anniversary logo.
The manufacturer also plans to organize and host celebratory events at plants, service centers and trade shows across North America.
“We still pride ourselves on being a family company that has only had two owners since its creation,” the company said in a press release. “We have seen the industry evolve, we are proud of our contribution to the tanker industry. We also are thankful for of all our employees who have helped us reach the high-quality reputation we have today.”
