About KRTS

Most important, we are a family business, we want you to feel like you are part of the family.

In 1989 Kim and Lisa started the business, which today is known as KRTS, out of their house, later moving to a shed in the backyard. Fast forward 30 years, still in Caledonia but with a facility they are proud to welcome you to and a team of professionals who can help you with all your needs which includes Kim and Lisa’s son Matt (Sales and Operations Manager) and daughter Jamie (Customer Service). Having the two generations together has strengthened our vision to making KRTS better.

KRTS is Canada’s leader in the transportation and construction training industries with a network of over 400 companies. Our team at Kim Richardson Transportation Specialist Inc. believes in quality education whether its for training with a company driver or for an individual.
