Tallman Truck Centre (TTC) Limited has been selected as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies as a requalified member. This is the third year in a row for TTC to receive this award.

Deloitte and CIBC awarded this prestigious designation following a rigorous two-phase application process that examined every facet of TTC’s business, including:

  • Strategic management processes
  • Short- and long-term planning
  • Employee engagement

“We are thrilled to have been selected as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies for the third year in a row,” said Kevin Tallman, president of TTC.  “Since 1973, we have been a leader in providing transportation services and a clear hallmark of oursuccess has been adaptability, sustainability, and growth. We continue to retain and attract top talent to maintain a competitive edge that focuses on issues and challenges utilizing continuous improvement processes.”

Tallman Truck Centre’s Cornwall facility is located on McConnell Avenue, just south of the Highway 401 interchange. The operation includes 10 truck service bays, a parts warehouse and truck sales/leasing operation and currently employs 22.

The Cornwall operation has experienced growth over the past several years as the City’s logistics and distribution sector has grown. With the recent announcement of the establishment of a Target Mart Distribution Centre in the Cornwall Business Park, business is expected to continue to build.

“We are well positioned to take advantage of Cornwall’s growth in the supply chain sector”, said Kirk Tallman, son of company founder Gerald Tallmand and General Manager of the Cornwall Tallman Truck Centre.
