The Heart and Soul of EBD Enterprises Inc. in Winnipeg
EBD Enterprises Inc. was founded by Bruce Danylchuks, who had a deep love for trucks. We began in 1981, with just a small office and then, with our hard work, grew into the successful shipping and freight company we are today. We understand all the concerns a client might have about shipping materials and this is the reason that we strive to make the whole process as stress-free and easy as possible for our Winnipeg customers. We ensure that our staff will always be happy to answer all your questions and concerns in a friendly and professional manner.
The history of EBD Trucking starts with Edward “Bruce” Danylchuk. Bruce had a life-long love of trucks and trucking from working around the big machines as a young boy. The dream officially came true in 1981 when Bruce bought the family business from his dad, Ed.
In 1981, Bruce operated EBD Trucking out of the back of his dad’s gas station. In 1998, he bought 12 acres just north of Inkster and Route 90 in Winnipeg and built the 50,000 sq. ft. building EBD operates out of today.
To date, after 35 years in business, Bruce is still “hands-on”. He takes pride in checking the tires every day on all the trucks and has an eye for detail in the office as well. He oversees every aspect of the business, from checking in with drivers and dispatch to keeping on top of the service and maintenance with our shop team, right down to ordering new trucks and trailers.
In 1982, Bruce’s wife Pam started doing EBD’s invoicing on the IBM computer at home. She also owned and operated a flower shop in Stonewall, Manitoba, until 1999 when she decided to focus on the shop full time.
Pam was instrumental in computerizing EBD Enterprises Inc.’s receivables and payables. The processes she established has accommodated the growth of the business – EBD Enterprises Inc. has doubled its fleet of trucks and trailers in the last nine years. Pam also owns a freight forwarding business, Precision Freight Systems Inc., which has grown to employ seven freight forwarding specialists and ships internationally.
