Mr. Louie Tolaini Inducted into the Manitoba Business Hall of Fame

We are very honoured to be attending the Manitoba Business Hall of Fame Gala this year where our president and founder, Mr. Louie Tolaini will be officially inducted into the Hall of Fame.

juniour-achievement-logoHosted each year by Junior Achievement, the Manitoba Business Hall of Fame Gala recognizes 4 individuals for their vision, leadership, integrity, and lifelong contribution to the Manitoba business community.

While TransX has achieved much success over the years, our company had a humble beginning.

Mr. Louie Tolaini immigrated to Virden in 1959. His first job in Canada was at the local GMC truck dealership. Fast forward to 1963, Louie was offered the opportunity to become the general freight provider for the Virden area by Coleman’s Cartage.  From there, Louie expanded the company throughout Manitoba and rebranded as TransX.

We are honoured to be able to witness our president receive this recognition and award. If you are also attending the gala, we look forward to seeing you there. Feel free to come by and say hi.

Date: May 11, 2017
Location: 281 Donald Street, Winnipeg

Congratulations once again, Mr. Tolaini!

Working at TransX Group of Companies is a Treat

TransX - Corporate Culture is a Real Treat in the Industry

It’s a win-win when everyone in our community is happier and healthier.

We care are about our employees
and giving back to the communities that we work in. We believe that through a strong promotion of building team morale, and personal development that everyone begins to takes pride in what they are doing.

Each year during the fall season we Run A United Way Workplace Campaign to promote a positive and fun work environment to endorse team building and team morale.

Our latest United Way Campaign started with a staff appreciation BBQ where we had some carnival type games and a dunk tank. The campaign was a week long and we planned several events such as a luncheon with two guest speakers who talked about poverty and adversity. We included a 50/50 raffle and guess the amount of candy in the jar. A big hit was our random acts of kindness event where employees had the opportunity to send flowers or candy to co-workers they felt deserved to be recognized or deserved a thank you.

It’s through these events that you really get to meet your co-workers and understand them on a more personal level. The fun was definitely put back into fundraising and we were/are very proud of the proceeds we generated for the United Way.
