About Us

Founded in 1950 by Tom and Peg Giel, our company was incorporated in 1974. During the 1980's, founders and son worked to transform the "mom and pop" shop to a corporation that today has 35+ employees, with 27+ full-time trucks to service their customer's needs. Edward B. Giel assumed ownership and presidency of the company following his father’s retirement in 1989. His business education at Robert Morris University has been a valuable asset, both in his position as President and also in managing sales for the corporation. Ed has built and expanded the business so that key staff members, administrative, sales & production managers guide the daily operations.
