Twenty Five Years

In September of 1989, John Fondriest, Eric Kimble and Eli Stutzman started First Class Transport, Inc. on a back porch in Dover, Ohio.  Twenty five years later, the hard work of our employees, contractors and partners has produced steady growth and our commitment to safety and service continues to win over customers.

In celebration, we’ve combed through our archives to create the gallery below, covering the entire history of First Class Transport, Inc. up to the present day.  We look forward to pursuing and exceeding our goals of top-to-bottom safety and exceptional service to our customers and partners long into the future.  We hope you can come along.

See Our Recently Completed Expansion

In May of 2013, we started construction of an expansion to our terminal.  The plan for this area was a spacious conference room and some additional storage.  We completed all construction and interior work by October, just in time for our Safety Meeting in November.This new space will aid our continuing growth by adding to our capacity to train and work with our employees and partners.  It also modernizes our ability to use and present current media, which will help us keep up as the industry continues to change.

It was long overdue but nonetheless we are happy to announce our new web site is up.  Our goal for the new design is to serve our customers and vendors better than its predecessor did.  It will also enable us to share news and information about the company with you.  Please browse around and report any issues to Ken@firstclasstrans.com
