Kriska Transportation Group (KTG) is pleased to announce the acquisition of BTC Express (BTC) of Brantford, Ontario. BTC will continue to be led by the current management team including Jacob Bicz as General Manager.
“KTG is very excited to welcome BTC, and its employee’s, contractors and customers to the KTG family,” says KTG CEO, Mark Seymour, “BTC will compliment well with the other KTG operating companies who function in the temperature-controlled space. That is a big part of our value proposition on both assets and brokerage. BTC is a safe, well managed and family-oriented company. That fits perfectly with KTG values.”
“When my brother Jan and I decided it was time to sell our business, we carefully considered whom we wanted to align our people and our customers with,” expressed Jacob Bicz, “Jan will pursue other interests, but I wanted to stay and grow the business. KTG offers each of us what we wanted, including a culture that we see as a great fit. KTG will let us be who we have been, but help us be better. The future is bright for BTC with KTG, and that’s what we wanted.”
BTC is a second-generation family business that has been owned and operated by the Bicz brothers, Jacob and Jan, for the past ten years. They are an asset-based truckload company that specializes in refrigerated freight with 65 power units and 150 trailers covering all of Canada and the United States.
KTG and its operating companies welcome BTC into the family and are looking forward to future collaboration and growth.
