About Menke Trucking
Menke is all about caring for our customers, staff & drivers like they are family by providing excellence in service, support, and a stable work environment.
Goal. Grow. Give.
Menke Trucking was founded in 2007 with just one truck, one driver, and one big dream. They hauled stone and aggregate material for a local quarry, but they didn’t stop there! Over the next few years, additional units were purchased and the ball was rolling. By 2010 Menke Trucking began the transition from local dump trucking to over the road trucking.
By 2012 Menke acquired the site of our current terminal in Leavenworth, IN. In each of the following years we have made additions and improvements to the terminal. Our growing fleet is currently made up of over 50 trucks and 90 trailers. We steadily add new equipment, more trucks and new drivers to our team.
We are motivated to keep dreaming, setting goals and growing so that we can give back to our community, our drivers, and their families. The principles of generosity and giving back are a core part of who we are. No matter how large Menke grows, you can count on one thing. We will always be family oriented and take care of our drivers and their families first.
Service. Support. Stability.
