McClymonds Marks 75th Year
McClymonds Associated Companies is proud to celebrate its 75th year as a respected leader in the dry bulk trucking and supply industry, both on the state and national level. With three-quarters of a century worth of experience, the family-owned company has established a reputation as the best in the business, providing customers with excellent service using reliable vehicles and a commitment to best practices.
Commemorating the company’s 75th Anniversary takes on a special significance considering the crucial role truck drivers and the trucking industry have played during the Covid-19 Pandemic. It is a great time to pay respect and thank all their professional truck drivers and the entire organization for their hard work and commitment in undertaking one of our economy’s most demanding and important jobs. 2020 is a year like no other and McClymond’s team worked together to create solutions to these unique challenges. These professional men and women not only deliver the goods safely, securely, and on time, they also keep our highways safe. This award-winning trucking company has been a fixture in the Pittsburgh area since 1945.
“I think that 75 years shows that we’ve not only been willing to diversify and adapt to the market but that we have the best team in the business,” said Mark McClymonds, owner. “We look forward to continuing our leading position in the Pittsburgharea for at least another 75 years.”
McClymonds was founded in 1945 by George R. McClymonds and his wife Gladys in Portersville, Pennsylvania after George’s return from serving in the US Army in Germany during World War II. George and Gladys were kept very busy running the trucking business and raising six amazing children. George’s youngest son, Mark, was hired in 1976 after graduating high school to drive a dump truck during the day and work as a mechanic on the trucks in the evening.
When George retired in 1983, Mark bought the company that consisted of 7 trucks operated by good drivers and serving a solid customer base that George had created over his 38 years of business. McClymonds had established a reputation for consistent and reliable service, supplying sand, gravel and limestone to homebuilders and developers.
In 1987, Mark and his wife Jan bought property at 296 Currie Rd, in Portersville, PA, just off Interstate 79 north of Pittsburgh. The location continues to serve as McClymonds Supply and Transit’s main operational and maintenance terminal and corporate offices. In 1998, the company purchased Don Martin Trucking in Sarver, PA and continued to grow rapidly.
Today, the McClymonds fleet has grown to over 550 company owned trucks and over 600 employees. While McClymonds Supply and Transit has become known for dump truck and trailer hauling, they also provide heavy hauling, pneumatic bulk tank, step-deck, flatbed, and roll off truck and trailer services. McClymonds also has a truck terminal in Somerset and Kennerdell, PA. McClymonds owns 2 river terminals: one in Crescent, PA and the other in Monaca, PA. They also have 2 rail terminals: one in Monaca, PA and the other in New Castle, PA.
The company supplies dry bulk materials to commercial, residential, highway construction companies, landscapers, industrial manufacturers, mills, oil and gas industry, among others. While the company still does over 90% of their hauling within 150 miles of Western Pennsylvania, they have diversified to providing services to all 48 contiguous United States and into Canada.
The only thing limiting growth for McClymonds these days is not the pandemic but finding qualified Class A and B CDL drivers to join their already incredible team. All the trucks in the fleet are 5-years or newer Peterbilt trucks.
McClymonds has the best of both worlds: all the benefits of a large company but the dedication and values of a family-owned business.
