Ralph Tomlinson founded R.W. Tomlinson Cartage in 1952 with one single-axle dump truck. His son, Bill Tomlinson, worked on weekends and joined him full time in 1962. Along the way, Bill’s younger brother Ken joined in 1964 and the company was incorporated as R.W. Tomlinson Limited in 1969. In 1976 Bill and Ken Tomlinson bought out their father’s interest in the company and ultimately Bill became the sole owner in 1990. Throughout the years, the company expanded its capabilities and completed a number of acquisitions. The company is now a prominent player in quarrying, construction, trucking, ready mix, land development and environmental industries, with a large fleet of company-owned vehicles in Eastern Canada. The Tomlinson Group is now in the hands of the third generation of the Tomlinson family, as Bill’s son Ron Tomlinson oversees the business. Today, Bill Tomlinson, along with his two children, Ron and Cindy, are the sole shareholders of the Tomlinson Group.
