OSHAWA (ONTARIO), May 16th, 2018 – Mackie is pleased to announce the acquisition of King’s Transfer Van Lines (Calgary) Ltd.
King Transfer Van Lines Calgary was previously owned and managed by Randy Hounjet, Steve Wichers-Schreur and Bill O’Donnell. King’s Transfer Calgary, an agent for Atlas Van Lines, is a recognized leader in corporate relocation. In May 2018, King’s received the Diamond Award for their high quality service.
