In the early/mid 1980’s Klapec Trucking Co. was growing exponentially with all the great industry we had to work with- around us. Our Terminal at the time was overfilled and we needed more space. This is what prompted our Founder Bert Klapec to make a huge jump to find a place to build a new facility. He found where we are now in Reno, and built it over a 2-year span, there was lots dirt work needed, with filling in and leveling done to make it what it is today. He built the Shop and the Office area as well as some things he always wanted, like onsite fueling, and onsite scale, eventually the lot would be blacktopped and the building with the paint facility, truck wash, and storage area were added. From the beginning Red Cross leased some space from us for their offices. About the time we were outgrowing our office space Red Cross moved out and allowed us to use our whole building for office. Many years after the build we outgrew this facility and needed more space yet. As more space was needed, we acquired the old Kmart eyesore down the road from us, we made truck and trailer parking there to house our overflow. Once we got the trucks set, we then moved to create a state-of-the-art warehouse space, so we completely rehabbed the old Kmart building to create 83,000 Square Feet of Storage/ Industrial space in this area, which has been very much needed by local manufacturers. To this day Klapec Trucking Co. is there to support Industrial partners in our area. Whatever challenges they may face Klapec Trucking Co. is there to help along the way.
