About Chicago Import Quarantine

Matt Haug and Quentin Wallace have more than 40 years of professional experience in the international equine business. In December of 2005, Matt and Quentin opened the Chicago Equine Export Center (CEEC) which is a USDA approved "rest & inspection" quarantine serving the large majority of horses exporting from Chicago. The goal was to improve the international transport industry by offering exporters a superior USDA approved quarantine facility in Chicago where horses are rested and inspected by the USDA prior to exportation. The success of CEEC can be attributed to its close proximity to Chicago-O'hare Airport, its experienced staff, and its safe and secure environment for horses.

CEEC has been the catalyst to Matt and Quentin pursuing a privately owned and operated import quarantine in Chicago. In 2010, the USDA granted him a license to own and operate an import quarantine in Chicago. The vision was to provide an alternative to owners and agents to import their horses into a centralized location within the USA that is supported by an abundance of international flights servicing Chicago. Shortly after the USDA granted the license, they teamed up with Arlington International Racecourse to secure an agreement to have the import quarantine built at Arlington International Racecourse. Like Arlington, The Chicago Import Quarantine offers first class service to its clients and their horses of ALL breeds. The same facility is used to quarantine and accommodate some of the finest equine athletes in the world that make Chicago their destination to compete in Arlington's international festival of racing.
