John Eek bought his first truck back in 1953. John had a passion for trucks and bought his first flat bed truck which he used to haul concrete blocks from Maple, Ontario to all areas around the GTA. It was a very strenuous job because at this time you had to load and unload every block by hand.
In 1957 he bought a fuel truck and was an agent for Esso. He had two trucks on the road delivering gas, diesel and home heating oil around Bradford, the Holland Marsh and Newmarket. In 1960 he was approached by Supertest to open an agency for them in Newmarket. He also had a gravel truck to help keep things going in the summer months.
In 1962 he sold his fuel tuck which enabled him to buy his second single axle dump truck. John had opened and operated some gravel pits in the Bradford area.
In 1975 his son Dave started working for him. By 1987 the fleet had grown to 13 trucks including one dump trailer. John got into the excavating portion of the business in 1984. In 1992 we got our first contract with the MTO servicing the 400 highway along with the other roads owned by the MTO. Since then we have had contracts in York Region, Simcoe County, Barrie and North Bay.
Today the fleet has a variety of different trucks from tandems, tri-axles, pony trucks, end dumps, hopper trailers, and live bottom trailers. We also offer flat bed and float services. Dave’s three sons Darryl, Joel and Kevin all began working for the company from a young age and continue to this day.
We strive to operate a professional and safe trucking company, providing a safe environment to work in along with excellent trucks and equipment to operate. We continue to supply our customers with prompt and professional service.
We are proud to have many long term employees, many who have worked here for over 30+ years.
