Hines recognizes employee accomplishments

By John Miller, 03/21/16 9:58 AM

HINES 036

HOPE – Hines Trucking celebrated a milestone Saturday night at the Fair Park Coliseum.

The company’s annual banquet was also the 80th anniversary of its founding. The Coliseum was decorated with silver and maroon balloons, the company’s colors, with photos adorning the walls showing the company from its beginning in 1936 to today.

Hines Trucking was founded in 1936 by J.D. Hines with one truck. He hauled logs, lumber and gravel in the Prescott area. He partnered with his son, Billy, in 1969, who had returned from college. At the time Billy Hines was the main mechanic, tire repairman and manager. The pair continued hauling gravel, but added more equipment.

Hines Trucking incorporated in 1976 and began expanding. The company was awarded its first chip hauling contract in 1979, and the contracts have continued to come in. The company’s chip-haul/short-haul division grew to 140 trucks serving southeast Oklahoma, northeast Texas, south Arkansas and north Louisiana.

Billy acquired the company in 1984 becoming President and CEO. His father stayed on as a consultant until his death in 1986.

Hines has continued growing, hauling flatbeds, refrigerated trucks and dry van freight to all 48 continental states. The long haul division was sold in 1990 with a regional flatbed division started in 2005.

Today the company has just under 200 drivers, including owner/operators. The annual banquet is how the company shows its appreciation to employees and their families, as, first and foremost, Hines remains a family-oriented business. The banquet also recognizes the winner of the children’s safety poster contest annually.
