SAN ANGELO – A Canadian trucking company announced Tuesday that it will be moving to the Concho Valley.
According to the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce, on May 24, Allen’s Transport, Ltd, (ATL) based in Leduc, Alberta, Canada has completed the purchase of the facility at 1182 Gas Plant Road in San Angelo, Texas.
Allen’s is one of the leading heavy-haul and logistics companies in north America with a fleet of trucks, custom trailers and equipment combinations to safely and efficiently service petrochemical, mining, pulp and paper, industrial, refinery and generator stations.
“Allen’s Transport acquiring the Gas Plant Road property adds to our position as a city with strong ties as a trucking transportation hub," said Mayor Brenda Gunter. "It solidifies our city as well positioned to support the needs of the oil and gas industry. As Mayor, I am proud to welcome Allen’s Transport to Texas and the San Angelo business community.”
The new San Angelo terminal at Gas Plant Road is a 24,500 sf industrial facility on 10 acres, and features 7 high-bays, repair and maintenance areas, equipment cleaning area and operations offices.
The property built in 2014, will serve as Allen’s Transport’s US headquarters with services provided throughout Texas, the United States and Canada.
“This important industrial recruit transaction started in 2019, as a combined effort of the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Department and the City of San Angelo Development Corporation (COSADC). ATL is developing a strong business model in west Texas and selected San Angelo as their US headquarters,” said Michael Looney, VP of Economic Development. “San Angelo is an excellent location for ATL’s servicing of industrial and energy production customers in Texas and will connect industrial enterprises throughout the greater Southwest US and Canada. Their presence here will continue the trend of accomplishing a stronger US logistics and supply chain hub based in San Angelo communicating with the Ports-to-Plains corridor, the San Angelo Rail Port and product delivery from the US-Mexico border and into western Canada.”
ATL has committed to a multi-million-dollar investment in San Angelo and seeks to continue their success in the lower 48 of the United States as a premiere logistics and supply chain provider to multiple industries from their San Angelo, Texas facility serving heavy industrial transportation needs throughout Texas, the southwest US, central and western Canada.
Allen’s Transport has expanded into various other oilfield related areas since its founding in 1991. They provide the equipment for both chemical and acid hauling, complete tank truck services, refined products, waste hauling, flat deck hauling, bed trucks, gravel hauling, hot shots, dust control, complete tank farm rentals, rail freight transloading and rail cargo storage.
“San Angelo is fortunate to have Allen‘s Transport locate here as they strengthen the supply chain and logistics for the energy sector. They further help us diversify our industrial and commercial tax base. We are pleased to welcome them our community” said City Councilman Tommy Hiebert, SMD 1.
