Allied Van Lines and Tippet-Richardson are both celebrating 95 years of providing excellent moving and storage services. Tippet-Richardson turned 95 in December and Allied are beginning their celebrations this year.
Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality.
Tippet-Richardson is thrilled to have been awarded the FAIM 3.2 Award, as complying with the requirements of the FIDI-FAIM Quality Standard for international moving. We are therefore recognized as an Affiliate of FIDI Global Alliance.
Earlier this month, Tippet-Richardson headed to Atlanta, GA, for IAM 2022. This year marked the 60th annual meeting for the International Association of Movers and we were thrilled to be able to attend.
Whilst T-R is celebrating its 95th anniversary, it’s quite fitting that we’re doing our staff focus on Jeff Brennan, as he’s also celebrating an anniversary: 30 years with the T-R brand!
Jeff has worked for T-R Westcan Inc. for 7 years, holding the position of GM at our Vancouver branch. However, he hails from Ontario and it is where he got his start working for Tippet-Richardson Limited and where he’s been doing the brand proud, most recently as the GM of our Ottawa branch.
We’re celebrating Tippet-Richardson’s 95th anniversary this year! T-R began life from humble beginnings in 1927 (the year of Canada’s Diamond Anniversary), when Basil Tippet and C.A. Richardson rented a warehouse and a moving van, to start their operation in Toronto. This was way back before there was even a highway into Western Canada.
Now we’ve been around for almost a century and we’ve certainly seen a few things. T-R has survived: the stock market crash of ’29 and the Great Depression that followed in the “dirty thirties”; the global devastation of World War 2; not to mention the COVID pandemic. We were even here when the maple leaf was raised for the very first time on the Canadian flag we know today.
Allow me to introduce you to our Calgary GM, Brenda Bressler. Brenda first joined T-R back in 2006, as the Receptionist. She took a short break from the industry in 2011 but then got pulled back in 4 years later. Brenda now oversees a staff of 20 employees, along with doing sales, plus coordinating and assisting with any challenges that arise daily.
