Quality Carriers Expands in Eastern Pennsylvania
TAMPA, Fla., April 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Quality Carriers, Inc.
("Quality Carriers"), the leading North American bulk chemical carrier, has
expanded its dry bulk presence in Eastern Pennsylvania.
"F.T. Silfies, our existing independent affiliate in Allentown, PA, joined us
in 2010," commented Randy Strutz, President, Quality Carriers. "Over the past
few years, we have worked together to diversify their business by adding
liquid bulk terminals to their network in Pittsburgh, Taylor and Williamsport,
PA. Recently, they had an opportunity to acquire another leading dry bulk
carrier in Eastern PA – J.P. Donmoyer."
"As an independent affiliate of Quality Carriers, we have been excited to grow
and diversify our business. With QC's help, we have added chemical terminals
to diversify us from our concentration in dry bulk," commented Evan Wechsler,
CEO, F.T. Silfies. "Due to our strong reputation in dry bulk, we had the
opportunity to significantly expand our dry bulk business by having J.P.
Donmoyer, based in Ono, PA, join the Silfies team. This increased scale and
market penetration will enable us to recruit more drivers, improve efficiency
and continue to provide outstanding customer service."
"We have worked diligently to grow our business. This latest move is
consistent with Quality's stated objective of dramatically expanding our
footprint. We look forward to further opportunities to expand our market
presence," continued Randy Strutz.
