Keith Groen started in trucking at a young age of 17 in SW MN hauling livestock, grain and milk. Keith relocated to WA State in the early 80's and served the trucking industry there being involved in dispatch and maintenance operations.
In 2000 family ties brought Keith and his wife Donna to NC where he served as service manager for a local trucking company in Eastern NC overseeing maintenance and assisting with operations. In 2003 Keith founded Groen Enterprises Inc. with a single truck transporting dry van freight.
Following in his Dad's footsteps, Wade grew up in and around trucks, hoping to one day own a trucking company together. Obtaining his ASE Diesel Technician Certification was the first step toward that goal. Following school Wade worked in WA as a Heavy Duty Towing and Recovery operator as well as a diesel technician.
In 2005 the GEI fleet of trucks had grown and was in need of a full time mechanic, so Wade made the decision to relocate his family from WA to NC. Since joining his Dad the company fleet has grown to over 17 trucks and more than 31 trailers. Keith still has a very active role at the company and Wade now oversees Safety, Fleet Maintenance and serves as General Manager. Both Father and Son know what it is to wear many hats, being readily available to shuttle or deliver loads, make trips around the country for specialty freight or roll under a truck for maintenance as needed. Remaining hands on for all aspects of the company offers continuous insight to the changing trends both over the road and in the shop.
Keith and Wade both have a common goal, to provide their customers with the dependable and professional services GEI is known for. This translates to safe, on time shipments for our customers with excellent safety history and well maintained equipment. GEI specializes in multi stop truckload and single stop truckload services that accompanies some refrigerated truckload services. GEI also offers drop trailers for their customers' loading convenience when requested.
Customers have a peace of mind when a GEI truck is under their important freight.
