The Hearn Group

Don Hearn & Sons Trucking had a contract to bag soda ash for Allied Chemical
at the LaSalle Packaging & Warehousing Ltd. in Amherstburg.

Begun in 1966 this company expanded into various divisions known as The Hearn Group.

By January 2006 it had been acquired by ThyssenKrupp of German steel fame.
La Salle became Honeywell ASCa Inc. The transloading operation ended following the
January 2005 bankruptcy of General Chemical.
