Dear Valued Customers

It is with much enthusiasm that we announce the acquisition of Groome’s charter business by Martz Group effective November 1, 2016.

As of this date, Martz Group will begin to handle all charter related transportation needs to both new and existing customers in the Richmond area.

Groome Transportation Originated in Henrico, VA in 1934 as a family business under the leadership of Harold V. Groome, Sr, and is currently led by Harold V. Groome, III, who continued the tradition of servicing the Richmond, Virginia area.

Martz Group and Groome Transportation embrace very similar philosophies in that they are both proponents of a customer focused business model, with safety ranking as the number one priority. Both companies also have a commitment to the preservation of the environment, and this is illustrated under the Green statements of both businesses.

Martz Group was founded in 1908 by Frank Martz, Sr, in Plymouth, PA, and is currently led by Chairman Scott Henry, fourth generation of the Martz family. Martz Group currently operates in numerous locations and states including: Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Florida, Tuxedo, MD, Washington, D.C. and Fredericksburg, VA.

Martz Group will bring some unique and exciting assets to the customers in the Richmond area:

  • Ultra-young fleet fitted with modern amenities

Groome Transportation is thankful for you allowing them to serve you, while Martz Group is looking forward to the opportunity to serve you. The transition will be smooth, and both companies are confident that you will be more than satisfied with your future experiences. Thank you for your business.
