|Motorways High-Tech Express is a subsidiary of the TRI-WHITE Corp who
also own TRI LINE and the White Pass & Yukon Railway.High Tech is the remaining company that started life as "Hill the Mover" in Hamilton Ont.
Motorways bought it as a Moving and Storage business.Motorways was bought by Federal Industries of Winnipeg and run as their Western Canadian trucking division. They had a smallish operation in Ontario and into Montreal. To expand this they then bought Direct Winters, who had a larger Ontario operation, from INTERSTATE SYSTEM.
Federal fell on hard times and closed or sold all their trucking divsions except for High Tech and TriLine which were both profitable. Federal was a true comglomerate owning diverse buinesses.
There was a shareholders revolt and the company was split in 2, the trucking and railway being spun off to Tri White and the balance becoming Russel Metals, as they had bought many steel distributors, the largest being Russel Steel. The corporate offices of both Tri White and Russel are in Mississauga. There is no Winnipeg presence at all.
