Keim TS was founded in 1955 by Glen and DeAnn Keim with two trucks acquired from their uncle Neil.
It takes hard work to build a business from the ground up, and that’s what Glenn and DeAnn Keim did – they worked hard and long through good times and slow times, through growth years and recessions. Through those years of long, hard work and solid business practices, KeimTS has always been a family business.
Growing the business
The 1970’s brought some steady growth for the company. It also brought new technologies to the trucking industry. The Keim’s took advantage of the burst in technology and created their own, homegrown software. But even with the new efficiencies on the business end they never lost sight of what was really important and that was their drivers. The company still uses voice-to-voice communications to check in with their drivers at least twice a day while on the road.
In 1997 a new Keim took the helm, when Stan Keim purchased the company from his parents, Glen and DeAnn. From those early days of running two trucks the company has now grown to own and control hundreds of top-of-the-line trucks.
“We are positioned well for today’s industry needs as well as for future growth. This is because we have always focused on a solid infrastructure and have the best people in the business,” Stan Keim says.
Stan’s mission is to put the best and safest product possible on the road with the right mix of customers and employees, while focusing on safety and solid training.
