"In 1988, the Union Railroad became part of Transtar, Inc. Transtar is a privately-held transportation holding company with principal operations in railroad freight transportation, dock operations, Great Lakes shipping, and inland river barging. The Transtar subsidiary companies were formed over the years to meet the transportation needs of various steel making facilities that were the predecessors of today's USX Corporation. Prior to 1989, the Transtar companies were wholly owned transportation subsidiaries of USX (formerly United States Steel Corporation). In December, 1988, these transportation companies were acquired by a new holding company, Transtar, Inc. The Transtar companies have a long business history, more than 100 years in many cases. The companies provide a broad mix of specialized transportation services by rail and water. In addition, some of the rail and water carriers own and operate bulk commodity docks and port facilities. Transtar's core business is serving the transportation needs of the steel, utility, mining, and chemical industries, although other business supplements this core."

Global Link Technologies, Inc. Announces the Acquisition of the Assets of Transtar International, Inc. Issue: Feb 11, 1999 HOUSTON, Feb. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Link Technologies, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: GLTK) announced today that it has completed the acquisition of the East Cushing Red Fork Sand Unit, and the 'Coble' field located in Creek County, Oklahoma from Transtar International, Inc. GLTK has also acquired a twenty-four percent working interest, and an option to purchase the remaining seventy-six percent working interest in the 'Frontier' field adjacent to the Red Fork Sand Unit. Engineering estimates have indicated proven producing reserves of over one million barrels of oil remaining in the fields. A remedial workover plan has been implemented and the company projects the production rate for the fields to exceed two hundred barrels a day when fully operational. Natural gas reserves are being finalized, and will be announced in the near future. The cause for the delay is the discovery of new natural gas reserves in the Cleveland formation that could dramatically affect the amount of reserves. COPYRIGHT 1999 PR Newswire Association, Inc.

Transtar stays within service center realm.(Brief Article) Author/s: Frank Haflich Issue: August 27, 1999 LOS ANGELES -- While Transtar Metals Inc., Los Angeles, which in less than a year has built itself into the distribution industry's largest specialist in aircraft aluminum, has gone outside the aerospace market for its new chief executive officer, it has chosen to remain within the service center industry. In naming Steven W. Scheinkman, chief operating and financial officer of Chicago-based Macsteel Service Centers USA, as its president and chief executive officer (AMM, Aug. 26) as his successor, Transtar founder Robert Paulson said: "He certainly represents the kind of service center we want to grow into, in terms of size and complexity." Macsteel USA is owned by South African distribution and trading giant Macsteel Holdings and France's Usinor steel organization. In addition to Ferro Union, Macsteel Service Centers USA includes Edgecomb Metals Co. Paulson said Scheinkman's skills as part of the top management of a "billion-dollar corporation" and his experience with the type of "long-term customer relations" that form the basis of a large service center's business, are the kinds of skills he was seeking in a new chief executive officer for Transtar, which also specializes in the marine and other transportation markets. Scheinkman, who served 17 years with Macsteel, succeeds Paulson, who will remain the distribution chain's chairman. Reporting to Scheinkman will be Ray Ball, president of Transtar's Pioneer Metals unit, Jack Middlebrooks, president of its Production Supply division, and Robert Stoltz, president of the Tiernay Metals unit. The former president of another unit acquired by Transtar, Mark Benjamin of Benjamin Metals Co., Gardena, Calif., chose to relinquish an active role in the firm upon its acquisition. Mike Zundel, who formerly ran Production Supply's operation here, is now managing the Gardena facility. Transtar also owns 50 percent of All Metals Services Ltd., an aerospace-oriented distributor in the United Kingdom. Scheinkman said last week the chance to become Transtar's next chief executive officer as well as its first president "provides an opportunity too good to pass up." Transtar has rolled up what were formerly the largest independent U.S. distributors of aerospace alloy aluminum sheet and plate, extrusions, as well as major outlets for bar and flat-rolled products. Paulson was a consultant to the aircraft industry prior to forming Transtar, which is controlled by his own Aerostar Capital, New York, and Chase Capital Partners, a unit of bank holding company Chase Manhattan Corp.

[Federal Register: March 5, 2002 (Volume 67, Number 43)] [Notices] [Page 9995-9997] From the Federal Register Online via GPO Access [wais.access.gpo.gov] [DOCID:fr05mr02-74] -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE Drug Enforcement Administration Transtar Distributors, Inc.; Revocation of Registration On July 29, 2000, the Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), issued an Order to Show Cause (OTSC) by certified mail to Transtar Distributors, Inc. (Transtar), located in Orlando, Florida, notifying it of a preliminary finding that, pursuant to evidence set forth therein, it was responsible for the diversion of large quantities of List I chemicals into other than legitimate channels. Based on these preliminary findings, and pursuant to 21 U.S.C. 824(d) and 28 CFR 0.100 and 0.104, the OTSC suspended Transtar's DEA Certificate of Registration, effective immediately, with such suspension to remain in effect until a final determination is reached in these proceedings. The OTSC informed Transtar and its owner/president, Nabil Maswadeh (Maswadeh) of an opportunity to request a hearing to show cause as to why the DEA should not revoke its DEA Certificate of Registration, 004662TIY, and deny any pending applications for renewal or modification of such registration, for reason that such registration is inconsistent with the public interest, as determined by 21 U.S.C. 823(h). The OTSC also notified Transtar that, should no request for hearing be filed within 30 days, its right to a hearing would be considered waived. On August 16, 2000, the OTSC was returned to DEA, marked "Return To Sender--Unclaimed.'' No request for a hearing or any other response was received by DEA from Transtar or Maswadeh nor anyone purporting to represent the registrant in this matter. Therefore, the Administrator of the DEA, finding that (1) thirty days having passed since receipt of the Order to Show Cause, and (2) no request for a hearing having been received, concludes Transtar is deemed to have waived its right to a hearing. After considering relevant material from the investigative file in this matter, the Administrator now enters his final order without a hearing pursuant to 21 CFR 1301.43 (d) and (e) and 1301.46. The Administrator finds as follows. List I chemicals are chemicals that may be used in the manufacture of a controlled substance in violation of the Controlled Substances Act. 21 U.S.C. 802(34); 21 CFR 1310.02(a). Pseudoephedrine is a List I chemical that is commonly used to illegally manufacture methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance. Methamphetamine is an extremely potent central nervous system stimulant, and its abuse is a growing problem in the United States. A "regulated person'' is a person who manufactures, distributes, imports, or exports inter alia a listed chemical. 21 U.S.C. 802(38). A "regulated transaction'' is inter alia a distribution, receipt, sale, importation, or exportation of a threshold amount of a listed chemical. 21 U.S.C. 802(39). The Administrator finds all parties mentioned herein to be regulated, and all transactions mentioned herein to be regulated transactions, unless otherwise noted. The DEA investigation shows that at the time of Transtar's pre-registration investigation on December 17, 1999, Maswadeh was personally served with the DEA notices informing him that ephedrine and pseudoephedrine are diverted for use in clandestine methamphetamine laboratories, as well as the notice of informing him that possession or distribution of a listed chemical knowing or having reasonable cause to believe that the listed chemical will be used to manufacture a controlled substance is a violation of the Controlled Substances Act. The DEA investigation shows that by March, 2000, Transtar was amassing a large quantity of pseudoephedrine. On March 20, 2000, DEA investigators observed 19 large boxes containing approximately 100 cases of pseudoephedrine being delivered to Transtar. The shipment was received by a business associate of Maswadeh, who used a fictitious name when signing for the shipment. Maswadeh was present when this shipment was received. Between March 20 and March 24, 2000, DEA investigators observed Maswadeh and his associate remove numerous large cardboard boxes from Transtar and place them into a storage unit. On March 24, 2000, DEA investigators observed Maswadeh ship three large boxes to California. A subsequent search of the boxes revealed approximately 3,036 bottles of pseudoephedrine, each bottle containing 120 tablets, for a total of 364,320 dosage units. The manufacturer's lot numbers and expiration dates had been scraped off of the bottles. The shipping label bore fictitious names for both the shipper and receiver, and also bore a fictitious address for the shipper. During this same time period, DEA investigators on several occasions observed Maswadeh and his associate place items in a dumpster located near Transtar. A search of the dumpster revealed 24 large cardboard boxes bearing inscriptions indicating that the boxes had contained pseudoephedrine. A subsequent search of the dumpster revealed numerous labels containing lot numbers that had been scraped off pseudoephedrine bottles. Additional items recovered from the dumpster included: receipts and shipping documents indicating Transtar was receiving large amounts of pseudoephedrine from numerous suppliers; five sealed bottles of ephedrine with their lot numbers and expiration dates removed; and a Federal Express Airbill indicating that a 90 pound shipment was sent to California on March 3, 2000. The Airbill showed address information consistent with the California address to which Maswadeh had sent shipments of pseudoephedrine. The Airbill bore a fictitious name and address for the shipper. On March 25 and 26, 2000, DEA investigators observed Maswadeh removing boxes of pseudoephedrine from the above-referenced storage unit. Also during this time, Maswadeh was observed placing items into a common [[Page 9996]] dumpster in his residential community. These items included the following: shipping documents and labels indicating Transtar received pseudoephedrine shipments from several manufacturers, and also hundreds of lot numbers that had been scraped off of pseudoephedrine bottles. On April 19, 2000, DEA received information that Transtar was attempting to place an order with a pharmaceutical manufacturer in New York for 300,000 bottles of pseudoephedrine per month. On June 1, 2000, DEA Confidential Source information revealed Maswadeh was willing to sell 240 cases of pseudoephedrine for the purpose of illegally manufacturing methamphetamine. On June 7, 2000, a search warrant was served upon the above-referenced storage unit. DEA investigators seized approximately 240 cases of pseudoephedrine tablets. Some of the pseudoephedrine was still in bottles, and some was loose in plastic bags. On June 10, 2000, Maswadeh met with an undercover DEA agent and agreed to transport the 240 cases of pseudoephedrine in a rented van. Confidential Source information acquired by DEA indicates Maswadeh and his associates were selling pseudoephedrine to individuals on the West Coast knowing that the chemical was to be used in the illicit manufacture of methamphetamine. Therefore, pursuant to 21 U.S.C. 824(d), the Administrator of the DEA issued an immediate suspension of Transtar's DEA Certificate of Registration. While the above-cited evidence provides ample grounds for an immediate suspension pursuant to 824(d), these grounds also provide the basis for the revocation of Transtar's DEA Certificate of Registration. Pursuant to 21 U.S.C. 824(a), the Administrator may revoke a registration to distribute List I chemicals upon a finding that the registrant has committed such acts as would render his registration under section 823 inconsistent with the public interest as determined under that section. Pursuant to 21 U.S.C. 823(h), the following factors are considered in determining the public interest: Maintenance of effective controls against diversion of listed chemicals into other than legitimate channels; Compliance with applicable Federal, State, and local law; Any prior conviction record under Federal or State laws relating to controlled substances or to chemicals controlled under Federal or State law; Any past experience in the manufacture and distribution of chemicals; and Such other factors as are relevant to and consistent with the public health and safety. Like the public interest analysis for practitioners and pharmacies pursuant to subsection (f) of section 823, these factors are to be considered in the disjunctive; the Administrator may rely on any one or combination of factors and may give each factor the weight he deems appropriate in determining whether a registration should be revoked or an application for registration be denied See, e.g. Energy Outlet, 64 FR 14,269 (1999). See also Henry J. Schwartz, Jr., MD., 54 FR 16,422 (1989). Regarding the first factor, maintenance of effective controls against diversion, the Administrator finds substantial evidence in the investigative file that Transtar and Maswadeh actively participated in the illegal diversion of pseudoephedrine knowing it would be used to manufacture methamphetamine. Regarding the second floor, compliance with applicable Federal, State, and local law, the investigative file in this matter reveals substantial evidence indicating that Transtar and Maswadeh significantly violated applicable law. In shipping substantial quantities of pseudoephedrine using fictitious names and addresses and in removing or otherwise destroying labels and lot numbers, Maswadeh clearly was attempting to conceal his activities from law enforcement. In addition, Confidential Source information showed that Maswadeh was willing to sell 240 cases of pseudoephedrine for the stated purpose of illicit manufacture of methamphetamine, and even stated to a DEA undercover agent that he was willing to deliver the 240 cases of chemicals in a rented van he would provide. The Administrator finds these facts support the following violations of applicable law: Transtar and Maswadeh violated 21 U.S.C. 841(d)(1) (possession of a listed chemical with intent to manufacture a controlled substance); 841(d)(2) (possession/distribution of a listed chemical knowing or having reasonable cause to believe that the listed chemical will be used to manufacture a controlled substance); 841(g)(1) (knowing distribution of a listed chemical in violation of the Controlled Substances Act); 841(g)(2) (possession of a listed chemical with knowledge that recordkeeping or reporting requirements not adhered to); 842(a)(5) and (10) (failure to keep required records); and 830(b)(1)(a) (failure to report any regulated transaction involving an extraordinary quantity of a listed chemical, an uncommon method of payment or delivery, or any other circumstance the regulated person believes may indicate that the listed chemical will be used in violation of this subchapter). (Note: subparagraphs (d) and (g) of 841 have been redesignated as (c) and (f)). Regarding the third factor, any prior conviction record under Federal or State laws relating to controlled substances or chemicals, there is no evidence in the investigative file that Transtar or Maswadeh has any record of convictions under Federal or State laws relating to controlled substances or chemicals. Regarding the fourth factor, past experience in the manufacture and distribution of chemicals, the Administrator finds substantial evidence in the investigative file that Maswadeh actively participated in the illegal trafficking of pseudoephedrine, knowing that it was being diverted to the manufacture of methamphetamine, as set forth in factor two, above. Regarding the fifth factor, such other factors relevant to and consistent with the public safety, the Administrator finds substantial evidence that Transtar and Maswadeh significantly violated applicable law by illegally trafficking substantial quantities of pseudoephedrine knowing it was being diverted to the manufacture of methamphetamine and further by failing to keep and maintain required records and failure to report suspicious listed chemical transactions. Accordingly, the Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration, pursuant to the authority vested in him by 21 U.S.C. 823 and 824 and 28 CFR 0.100(b) and 0.104, hereby orders that DEA Certificate of Registration 004662TTY, previously issued to Transtar Distributors, Inc., be, and it hereby is, revoked; and any pending applications for renewal or modification of said registration be, and hereby are, denied. This order is effective April 4, 2002. Dated: February 22, 2002. Asa Hutchinson, Administrator. Certificate of Service This is to certify that the undersigned, on February 25, 2002, placed a copy of the Final Order referenced in the enclosed letter in the interoffice mail addressed to Linden Barber, Esq., Office of Chief Counsel, Drug Enforcement Administration, Washington, DC 20537; and caused a copy to be mailed, postage [[Page 9997]] prepaid, registered return receipt to Mr. Nabil Maswadeh, Transtar Distributors, Inc., 6130 Edgewater Drive, Unit D, Orlando, Florida 32810.
