Hornady Transportation has announced its operational merger with Builder’s Transportation Company went into effect Oct. 1.
Both companies are part of Daseke, Inc., of Addison, Texas, the largest owner of flatbed, open-deck and specialty trucking capacity in North America. The merger was announced by Daseke in August of 2019 as part of a company-wide operational plan.
Headquartered in Monroeville, Alabama, Hornady has been in operation since 1925. Its terminal in Birmingham, Alabama supports the building materials and steel industries east of the Rockies with the merger resulting in a second terminal in Memphis, Tennessee. The company said its merger with BTC’s operations has enabled Hornady to further diversify its freight mix and double in size while strengthening its service to the building materials, steel, oil and gas industries with a fleet of 406 late-model tractors and 605 flatbed trailers.
A statement from the company said that by joining two companies with a combined service record of nearly 150 years, Hornady “embraces a future of continued stability and growth as they further honor their commitment to quality and reliability. The added freight mix has also allowed for additional capacity and added staff in Monroeville, expanding drivers’ career opportunities with Hornady as they continue to prioritize individual customer needs.” The company said drivers have updated equipment, collaborative teams and support.
“The merger goes beyond numbers,” said Chris Hornady, CEO. “We’re bringing together two innovative organizations who have a shared vision and trust in one another. We look forward to the positive changes to come and value our team members’ support in this transition.”
Hornady said the company’s mission remains to succeed in operational excellence and provide industry-leading customer satisfaction.
