NEWBURY, OH… Roger Kral was honored for 52 years of driving for Kuhnle Brothers at a steak dinner at the company’s headquarters this past August 11th.  Typical for Roger, he ran two loads to Cleveland and back that morning, arriving back at headquarters a few minutes before the steak fry began. 

79 year old Roger wanted to drive truck since he was a little kid. When a truck would drive by the playground, Roger couldn’t take his eyes off it.  He started driving truck at the age of 18 and in his 61 years of driving, 52 of those have been at Kuhnle Brothers, logging an amazing 5 million+ safe miles.

Roger and his wife of 38 years Cindy live in  Newbury, Ohio.  Roger plans to keep on trucking as long as he can.

Kuhnle Brothers is a bulk tank hauler with one of the country’s largest fleets of rubber lined and composite tankers, along with numerous stainless tanks and dry bulk trailers.  They have a fleet of 220 power units.
