Trinity Industries Inc. acquired the assets of Platinum Energy Services Corp. through a newly formed subsidiary.

The company operates out of two leased facilities in Calgary and one owned facility in Redcliff, Alberta. Also, Trinity announced Melendy Lovett, a member of Trinity’s board since 2012, will become senior vice president and chief administrative officer, effective March 10.

Construction is expected to begin in the third quarter and be substantially completed in fourth-quarter 2015.
