Sidney, NE, November 19, 2009 — Adams and Son Trucking, Inc., a company with a long history of serving customers with a complete array of trucking, warehousing and logistics services, has a new name with a familiar ring to it: Adams Industries, Inc.
The name change is one element in a rebranding effort to reflect the full range and scope of what Adams Industries, Inc. can do for its customers. Founded in 1987 as Adams and Son Trucking, the company has become a leader in the transportation industry, with a fleet of nearly 100 late-model trucks, flatbed trailers, vans and specialized extendable trailers.
Today, it’s a full-service logistics company with the three-prong capability of getting products anywhere in the world via truck, rail, ship or plane, coordinating transload projects via dual-served rail access, and providing warehousing services with 700,000+ square feet of available indoor storage.
The company’s 550+-acre facility has more than 140 acres of stabilized ground suitable for laydown applications concerning large, heavy and oversize commodities such as pipe, steel, concrete and wind tower components. Its centrally located site in Sidney, NE, offers immediate access to the country’s two largest railroads, BNSF Railway and Union Pacific Railroad. Adams Industries, Inc. is recognized as a Premier Transload facility for BNSF Railway along with Union Pacific’s Pipeline Express and has a preferred transload designation with Union Pacific. The facility has the unique option of handling both unit trains and manifest cars.
Though the Adams Industries, Inc. name is new, the philosophy behind it has always been part of what president Don Adams and his father, founder Robert Adams, have aimed to provide to customers.
“We pride ourselves on being our customers’ choice for the ‘final mile,’ that crucial part of the process where resources, timing and budgets can make or break a load getting to its final destination,” Don Adams said. “Our customers count on our team to be their one-call consultants who will provide an expert, experienced analysis of the best way to get their job to the site and then ensure everything goes according to plan.”
The new name, Don Adams added, signals a commitment to the future. “In coming months, Adams Industries, Inc. will expand its physical and logistical capabilities—adding more agents, trucks and 9,000 additional feet of private rail to the Sidney yard in the first quarter of 2010, for a total of nearly 35,000 feet of rail.” The company also plans to increase the footprint of stabilized ground in addition to developing manufacturing space.
