Bowers Trucking, Inc. was formed in the early 1960’s by Glen C. Bowers as a carrier branch to service the product and equipment hauling needs for Glen Bowers Sawmill & Lumber Company based out of Fairfax, Oklahoma. At that time, Bowers carried lumber to several large contracts throughout the region; including La-Z Boy Furniture, Pepsi and Coca-Cola Crate Companies and fulfilled several US government orders.
Since that era, Bowers Trucking has up-rooted and moved to Ponca City, Oklahoma. Ultimately, the move has allowed the company to sustain further growth and take on more projects than it ever had opportunity for in previous years. The most significant growth took place under the initial leadership of Ranond Bowers (oldest son of the founder). Ranond bought his way into the company just before the turn of the year 2000 and has retained ownership ever since.
In 2007 Garrett Bowers (son of Ranond) came into the company as a full-time employee to dispatch and maintain fleet health. Over the last decade Garrett was promoted to Vice President and has expanded the operating regions Bowers Trucking conducts business in. Namely, he pushed the fleet into not only consistent services throughout the US, but also introduced the company into conducting hauls into Canada and Mexico within the last few years.
