MORTON, Ill, October 3, 2017 – G&D Integrated announced that it has acquired the tanker business of Bell Enterprises, Inc., a privately owned agricultural firm which specializes in grain handling and transportation.
The purchase of this operation from Bell Enterprises, based in Deer Creek, Illinois, gives G&D Integrated an opportunity to enter the tanker transportation market. “The combination of Bell’s tanker experience with our existing transportation capabilities expands our services into the hauling of not only food grade alcohol but also other bulk products transported by tanker,” said Jeff Cohen, vice president of transportation at G&D Integrated. “The addition of this business to our service offerings supports our continuing growth throughout the Midwest and Southeast regions of the country.”
