Last Thursday was a very special day for us here at TransX. Most of us here know of Mr. Tolaini’s story and his hard work over the years so it was an extremely proud moment for us to see him recognized by the Manitoba business community and all of his peers for all that he has accomplished.
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.
Hosted 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.

Congratulations once again, Mr. Tolaini!
