Gypsum Express Ltd. Company Review

Gypsum Express Ltd.

Gypsum Express Ltd. company logo

John Wright opened Gypsum Wholesalers in 1973 with a pickup truck and borrowed trailer. By 1982 his building supply business was growing faster than suppliers could service - so Gypsum Express was started with a single tractor and a flatbed trailer.

John's love of trucks and his determination to take control of the transportation needs of Gypsum Wholesalers lead to the incorporation of Gypsum Express Ltd in 1985. John's reputation for great service became well known and companies were soon calling him to haul their loads.

Gypsum Express Ltd today has 500+ Tractors, with terminals located in seven states and over 650 employees.
