Jay's was named Saskatchewan's Business of the Year by the Saskatchewan
Chamber of Commerce.

"We are extremely pleased to add Jay's to our organization. Dennis Doehl is a
true entrepreneur starting with just a couple of trucks nearly 50 years  ago. 
His company has an exceptional reputation for providing outstanding service to
its customers  and we  look forward  to working  with the  management team  to 
enhance the  service  offerings  to  Mullen  Group's  existing  customers  and 
realizing on the potential synergies resulting from this acquisition. This is
a great company with an established  history and a strong management team.  As 
such, we  anticipate a  quick  and smooth  transition.  I am  also  extremely 
pleased to announce that Dennis Doehl has agreed to remain with Jay's for  the 
balance of the  year to help  with the transition",  stated Murray K.  Mullen, 
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
