Thanks to R&C Weare Logging on the purchase of their new 2018 4900SF Western Star 50th Anniversary truck.
R&C Weare are a family-owned logging company equipped with 13 harvesting machines, 10 tractor trailers hauling wood, and roadbuilding gear. They run a harvesting and trucking operation, along with a large maintenance and repair shop and mobile maintenance equipment.
Roger Weare established the company in 1970 when he began working for Bowater operations in the central part of the southern end of Nova Scotia, with a cable skidder. Roger along with his wife, Joanne, built their business in their home base, in the Village of Caledonia, Nova Scotia. The scope of the operations covers about a 150 kilometre radius of Caledonia.
In 2014, after Roger passed away his son Chris Weare stepped up to the plate with the support of his family to run and grow the business. Chris oversees daily management of the harvesting and trucking operations as well as surpervising the maintenance and repair shop. His mother Joanne runs the office using her experience in the business since it opened and his sister Cindy Ross also helps out providing office support.
Chris grew up in the business and even began operating feller bunchers at the age of 11, so it was a natural transition to carry on his father and family’s legacy.
R&C Weare have always been serious Western Star fans & a loyal customer for over 20 years. And when I say serious I mean their family also owns the Hollow Log Café in Caledonia, which is the home of the Big Rig Burger and they even built a Western Star inspired playground next to the Café.
