WHERE IT ALL STARTED
Klapec Trucking Company's history began when, at age 18, Bert Klapec, founder, bought his first used dump truck and hauled coal and gravel. At first, maintenance was done in the backyard in the cold, mud, and snow. As the fleet of trucks and trailers grew, larger quarters were needed.
Eventually, the business was moved into an old leased building on Cherry Run Road in Rouseville, Pennsylvania, the building remodeled and a portion added. Later, the headquarters were moved to the old Independent Refinery building on North Seneca Street in Oil City, Pennsylvania, and a new building and office were built. The business continued to grow and in 1986 moved to the present location in Reno, Pennsylvania. With continued expansion, the Reno terminal acquired additional land 2015.
The family business has continued to operate with Bert’s daughter Cindy Urban at the helm, and today Bert’s grandchildren, Greg, Tracy, Marc, Natalie, and Bridget are helping to lead Klapec Trucking in various roles. KTC boasts a force of 80 trucks, 175 trailers and employs over 100 people from all surrounding communities.
From flatbed and van freight to specialty cargo and over-dimensional loads, Klapec Trucking Company does it all! We are proud of our team of professional drivers, shop, and office personnel. Working together has been our philosophy to deliver exceptional customer service for over 68 years.
