Founded by Archie Verspeeten, Verspeeten Cartage has been a 100% family owned and operated company since 1953. Growing up on a Norfolk County farm in rural Ontario, Archie developed a practical approach to business and a strong work ethic that he would later pass on to his 5 sons.
In 1953 when he borrowed $800 to buy his first truck, Archie never imagined that one day he and his boys would build a major transportation organization with a fleet of over 1,600 pieces of equipment.
Although today Verspeeten Cartage Ltd. looks vastly different from the company Archie founded in 1953, their values have remained the same. In fact, it is still their mission to exceed their customer’s expectations for Quality, Service, Price and Technology at every turn.
On November 1, 2006 Archie Verspeeten officially retired passing down the business to his son Ron Verspeeten who had served as the company’s Vice President and then President over the last 30 years. Today, Ron plans to continue to grow the business based on the principles his father held so dear.
As today’s recognized leader in transporting goods for the Automotive Industry, Ron will continue to look for ways to improve the way Verspeeten Cartage Ltd. does business and deliver even greater value to their customers.
