THE BEGINNING OF THE JOURNEY
C.M. Containers Ltd., was founded by Marc Berard to specialize in container stuffing of hardwood lumber and logs.
GERRY MEETS MARC
Gerry Gamache came on board in partnership with Marc Berard.
NORTHWAY FORWARDING ESTABLISHED
Northway Forwarding is founded in Montreal, to service Eastern Canada and northern eastern U.S. customers.
KING CITY CONTAINERS IS ESTABLISHED
They soon recognized a demand for service in Ontario and founded King City Containers Ltd. This division was to support the industry in Ontario, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Indiana and western New York. Lloyd Lovett moved from Montreal to King City and was appointed to operate this new Ontario-based location.
Gerry Gamache along with Michel Berard (Marc's brother) purchased the partnership from Marc Berard. They amalgamated the two companies and renamed them King City/Northway Forwarding Limited.
KING CITY CONTAINERS OWNERSHIP TRANSITION
Mr. Lovett purchased the terminal in King City from Gerry and Michel and renamed it King City Containers
In May 2002, after more than 30 years in the industry, Gerry Gamache decided to retire and sold his shares in King City/Northway Forwarding Limited to Lloyd Lovett, making him and Michel the principal owners.
