Hirschbach Lessors Acqusition

Hirschbach Motor Lines acquires Lessors Inc.

June 29, 2021
The Eagan, Minnesota-based fleet brings over 200 drivers to Hirschbach’s fleet, allowing the company to expand its freight capacity and offer additional services to its customers.

Hirschbach Motor Lines has acquired the Eagan, Minnesota-based company Lessors Inc., adding over 200 drivers to its fleet.

Hirschbach, a refrigerated and temperature control specialist, has a current driver/operator base of 2,200 and is expected to exceed 2,400 after the integration with Lessors. This acquisition will allow Hirschbach to expand its freight capacity and offer additional services to its customers.

“We’re very excited to welcome the Lessor drivers along with their mechanics and office staff to the Hirschbach family,” Brad Pinchuk, CEO and owner of Hirschbach, said. “It’s an organization I’ve admired for decades.”

“Lessors has a reputation of providing a high level of service to their customers, an outstanding safety record, low driver turnover, and running very nice equipment, which is meticulously maintained,” Pinchuk added. “Our customers on both our OTR and Dedicated divisions are asking us for more capacity; the Lessors acquisition will allow us to fill many of those requests.”

Started in 1983 by James and Wendy Shapiro, Lessors Inc. is a full-service refrigerated motor carrier specializing in transporting time-sensitive, temperature-controlled products. It operated with three terminals in Eagan, Minnesota; Dover, Florida; and Caldwell, Indiana.

“We’re honored that they’ve entrusted Hirschbach to take care of their hard-working team,” Pinchuk concluded.
