A Half-Century of Trucking Success
In the early 1960’s J.C. McElroy, Jr. purchased one pulpwood truck, a power saw and a loader. From its humble beginning, the pulpwood business began to grow and several log trucks were added during the 1960’s. Growth continued and in the late 1960’s the business was incorporated under the name of Sumter Timber Company, Inc.
In the mid 70’s the company began its trucking operation hauling wood chips, sawdust and shavings from local sawmills to local pulp mills. It was during this time that the first flatbed trailer was purchased to haul lumber locally.
In the mid 80’s the timber and trucking operations were split, and McElroy Truck Lines was formed. McElroy Truck Lines began to grow and focused on delivering building materials in the southeast. The company had an important principal during this time of growth…. getting the drivers home on the weekend. This allowed J.C. to stay true to his Sabbath beliefs and allowed drivers to spend time with their families.
The 90’s saw significant change and major growth. J.C.’s sons, Jay and Sean joined the company in the early 90’s. The company expanded its operating region and customer base. Terminals were added in TX, NC, and north AL. The company focused on geographic regional operations so it could maintain its commitment to have drivers home on weekends.
In recent years, the company has grown into one of the largest flatbed companies in the country and the third generation of McElroy’s are beginning to join the business. J.C. has always maintained two Biblical principals in whatever he does; treat others like you want to be treated and get the drivers home every weekend so they can worship and spend time with their families, as they see fit. He says “God has blessed our family in many ways and we want to honor Him in everything we do”.
