History of Armour Transportation Systems
Gordon Armour founded Armour Transportation Systems back in the 1940s. He set up shop from scratch in the small community of Taylor Village in New Brunswick. In those days, Armour transported hay out of the village, using his own truck. The service continued into the 1950s and then evolved from hay to food, commodities and Christmas trees.
The business transported these goods to Nova Scotia as well as the United States. The service eventually became a business in 1955. Gordon Armour called it GM Armour & Son Ltd. Armour gained a reputation for his hard work and honesty, as the company was always went the extra length to please their customers.
The same mentality continues today as his son Wesley keeps on trucking with Armour Transportation Systems. The organisation has become one of Canada’s prime transportation and trucking experts. They have also extended their presence from little Taylor Village to the rest of Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.
