For Immediate Release
Effective Friday March 15, 2013 Hammond Transportation has taken over the coach and limo business of Sinton Transportation of Barrie. The transaction will expand Hammond’s motorcoach fleet to 19 coaches and will add two limousines, a limo bus, and other vehicles to the Hammond fleet.
To maintain the excellent service that the Sintons have provided all of the coach and limo drivers, as well as Deb Puddister (coach and limo manager) have joined the Hammond Transportation family. “We are very excited about this expansion” said Greg Hammond. “So many customers have long
relationships with the drivers and staff who have taken care of their transportation needs, and we are thrilled that the entire group has chosen to join us.”
Hammond will operate from an office and shop on the outskirts of Barrie which will be opened in the next few weeks. Hammond noted that even though the name on the vehicles is changing all bookings, contracts and price quotations that you have made with Sinton Transportation will be honoured.
Customers can expect the same family atmosphere and service that the Sinton family has provided to continue. In fact, for nearly sixty years the Sintons and the Hammonds have been friends and associates as the two family-run transportation businesses have grown side by side. The Sintons have provided sixty years of trustworthy service in Simcoe County and beyond. Hammond Transportation has been providing safe, friendly service in and around Muskoka Parry Sound since 1944 and we have been operating in Simcoe County for forty years
The Hammond roots in Simcoe County’s transportation history run deep – ninety years ago Greg Hammond’s Grandfather Harold received his professional driver’s licence to drive a bus for T.R. Huxtable Bus Lines in Barrie.
“We are excited about the expanded services that we will be able to offer and we are looking forward to serving the Barrie and South Simcoe area” states Greg Hammond.
