Vanderspek continued, "Once again, we thank our customers for their support and our employees for their hard work in accomplishing this achievement."

Our History

It all started in 1963, when founder Carl Vanderspek started the trailer business with operations under Public Freightways. Over the next couple of decades the business and fleet grew by acquisition out West in BC, and expanded operations into the North in 1979 which directly contributed to the company's profitable growth over the next couple years. In 1985 the company had 1,000 trailers and The Lions Gate Trailers brand was born. The 1990's faced some struggles due to the down turn in economy, but we came out strong by reinvesting in our western operations. In the early 2000's we expanded operations into Edmonton, AB and began acquiring more companies to help grow the business. With an acquisition in Eastern Canada in 2006, we were able to open facilities in Hamilton, Mississauga and Montreal while adding 3,700 additional trailers to our fleet. Over the next few years the business flourished with acquisitions of additional trailers and facilities in Kitchener, London, Quebec City, Moncton, Winnipeg, Langley, Delta, Saskatoon, Regina, and Mississauga. We have truly become the only coast-to-coast trailer solutions provider in Canada. We celebrated 50 years of dependable service in 2013 while expanding operations in Ontario. We are honoured to have been awarded one of Canada's Best Managed Companies for 2014 and 2015 due to our dedication to provide quality trailer solutions. We continue to grow the business across the country and provide dependable, reliable safe trailer solutions.
