(WEEK) – A local trucking company relocated from Bloomington to Morton and celebrated the move today.
Manito Transit has now opened their Morton headquarters. They moved to be closer to parent company “Growmark Inc”, now located right next door.
When Growmark first bought Manito Transit, there were only 23 trucks. Today there are 150. The Morton location will give Manito drivers easy access to the truck repair center and to the interstate.
“This location will allow us to have more visibility from the interstate we intend to put either billboards or signage out recruiting drivers, hiring drivers and technician’s for the Growmark tank and truck center,” said Steve Kubsch Director of transportation operations for Growmark.
The executive director of the Morton chamber of commerce says this move is good for the local economy.
