    Ronald Gross Trucking Benefits From Load Covering Solutions

    By Steve Pollock

    CABOT, PA... Ronald Gross, Inc., a Western Pennsylvania flatbed carrier, has been benefitting from using Load Covering Solutions' Windmaster series of tarping systems. The company has 16 Windmaster Tarping Systems in their fleet of 50 trucks

    . VP Ronnie Gross, Jr. states, "We have been using the Windmaster Tarping Systems for two years now. We have used other systems in the past but find the parts and product support from LCS to be phenomenal. The company trained our mechanics to install the units in our own shop, where we also take care of the maintenance. Not only have we gained 2/10ths of mpg on the LCS aerodynamic trailers, it has helped us to reduce tarping related workmen's compensation claims - particularly rotator cuff injuries. The awesome graphics that LCS applied to our systems creates a rolling billboard that other drivers see on the road and in the mills. Our drivers love them, and we plan to eventually install them on 90% of our fleet."

    Ronald Gross, Inc. was founded by Ronnie's father, Ronald Gross, Sr. in 1965 with a single truck. Drivers like working at Ronald Gross, Inc. because of the work environment where everyone is treated like family. Ronnie said, "Everyone here, with the exception of two of the ladies in our office, has driven truck at one time."

    The company enjoys a very low 30% annual driver turnover rate. Many drivers have been with the company for 20-35 years. One driver, Steve Roger, has worked at Ronald Gross, Inc. for over 30 years and has logged an impressive 3 million miles without any chargeable accidents. The company distributes employment anniversary gifts to their drivers each year. Ronald Gross, Inc. is currently hiring Professional Truck Drivers with or without steel hauling experience. If you are interested in a career at RGI, give Ronnie a call at 866-809-2194.
