HISTORY OF INDUSTRIAL TRANSFER AND STORAGE
Today Industrial Transfer and Storage is a leader in plant relocation work, heavy machine rigging and custom fabrication throughout North America, however, the beginnings were in moving textile goods using horse drawn vehicles. Originally named Southbridge Trucking Company in 1905, the company moved textile manufacturing machinery, raw materials, and unfinished textile goods.
By 1928, owner Edmond Richard was also moving households. In the late 40’s, Noe “Shine” Frenier bought the company for 20 years until it was sold to Norman Benoit. Just 9 years later the company was once again sold to Norman Cloutier who retained ownership until 1984. It wasn’t until this last change in ownership that the vision of Southbridge Moving Co expanded into Plant Relocations. In 1984 the company was purchased by Carter Cooley. Utilizing his 20 year background in Manufacturing Engineering and Management, including manufacturing reconstruction and plant relocation, Carter was able to transition the company toward one that specializes in plant relocation work.
In 1990 the company name was changed to Industrial Transfer and Storage to better relate their new services. Over the last 30 years ITS has specialized and lead the way in plant relocation work. They have refined their services and strategies for helping customers with complicated plant relocations or simple single machine moves and installations.
Though horse drawn vehicles have been replaced with 18 wheelers and Versa-Lifts, the philosophy of top-notch customer service set forth by Edmond Richards over 100 years ago remains the cornerstone of the company. Now a second generation of the Cooley clan has taken over the reins at ITS. Carter’s son, Eric Cooley is stepping up to meet the challenges and needs of an ever evolving industry. Carter’s vision and influence is still and will always be embraced as ITS continues to help its customers succeed by exceeding their expectations through technical excellence, superior customer service in all work and in a safe and environmentally conscience way.
