Campbell Bros. Acquires Highland Moving & Storage
EDMONTON, March 1, 2017
On March 1, 2017, Highland Moving & Storage changes ownership from the Kachur family to the Campbell family. After 79 years of serving Alberta’s moving needs, Highland will move forward under new leadership but with the same name and dedicated, experienced staff with a commitment to safeguard and expand its full moving services for Albertans.
Rapidly expanding Campbell Bros. Group of moving companies, with its head office in London, ON has purchased the Highland Moving and Starline Overseas companies. Don Campbell, the president of Campbell Bros., and Don Kachur, have been partners in United Van Lines (Canada) Ltd., for decades and both have served as board members and Chairman of United. When it came time for Don Kachur to retire, it made sense to keep the company in the United family by selling to the Campbell Group.
Highland Moving and Campbell Bros. were both born in the traditions of family values and hard work. With a seamless transition from one family to another, Highland Moving will offer the same great moving experience with Campbell Bros., who, with 19 offices across the country, make it Canada’s largest family-owned moving company.
The Campbell Group’s management is made up of many of the family members of the companies acquired by Campbell Bros., who have stayed on to keep the histories and the values of these companies alive.
Highland is a perfect fit for the Campbell Group’s continued growth. The Highland family of employees will fit our culture and take pride in our achievements of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, 2016 Profit magazines top 500 fastest growing companies and United Van Lines (Canada) Ltd.’s most quality awarded member.
Campbell’s affiliated company in relocation management TransferEASE Relocation is WBE and ISO certified. Highland Moving extends the Campbell Group’s service capabilities to provide a global solution in moving, relocation, destination services and real-estate services.
Highland complements the western growth of the company by strengthening the current services offered by Campbell Bros. The growth of our moving family across Canada is an inspiration to all who work at the Campbell Group and we warmly welcome Highland and Starline to our family!
