Jeff and Yvette Mear are the new owners of Fruehauf, effective 18 August.

They take 100% ownership of the transport company after purchasing the remaining Fruehauf shares from Phil and Karen Watchorn.

“We have fantastic employees who are highly skilled and experienced, we have excellent and loyal customers who appreciate the quality of our products, and we have great strategic supply partners who want us to be successful by leading a mutually beneficial pathway of further growth.”
