“We Bleed Gypsum Red”
“I like that Gypsum takes pride in their company. They take care of their equipment, employees and customers.”
Michael has been on the Gypsum team for nine years and runs out of the Savannah terminal. He loves to travel and be on the road, so he appreciates the consistent loads and his 2015 Cascadia. In his free time he enjoys restoring old cars, but he loves his home time during the winter months the most, because that is when hunting is the best. We cannot begin to express our appreciation we have for Michael and his nine years of dedication to our family!
“What I love most about Gypsum are the people here. Everyone is
friendly and everyone is honest– I have never been lied to.”
John has been with the Gypsum team just shy of two years, and has recently become one of our driver trainers at our Danville, VA terminal. His second favorite thing about working here is his 2015 Cascadia because, “it runs great and drives easy”. During his free time he enjoys fishing, golfing, and spending time with his wife and family. John is such an upbeat and kind individual, we all are thankful to have him here at Gypsum Express.
“There are a lot of companies out there that don’t know who you are when you walk into the office. That’s not how it is here; it’s a family atmosphere, and you know that you matter here.”
Robert has been a Gypsum driver our of our Shadyside terminal for seven years, and a driver trainer for four years. He enjoys being a flatbed driver because of its consistency and the people you get to meet throughout your journey. He spends his weekends doing spontaneous activities with his wife and daughter, like heading to the zoo or the water park. We are so thankful to have Robert on our team, and to have had the opportunity to watch his family grow.
“The pay is better and the people really care about you. You’re more than just a number here- you’re a member of a family.”
Brian has been at Gypsum two years, and is one of our driver trainers at the Vanlue terminal. As a member of our training team, he promises that our program is one of the most comprehensive in the industry. The team behind you here at Gypsum Express will push for your success and safety. When Brian isn’t driving his truck, you can find him with his family at church, a drive-in, or walking around a local flea market. We are so proud of all Brian’s successes.
“What I like about Gypsum is that you can tell we are moving in the right direction; purchasing new equipment, hiring of great driver managers, and working to keep drivers happy. They’re the right place to be.”
David has been with Gypsum for a total of five years, and became a driver trainer in May of 2014. On his weekends he enjoys taking his new camper out with his wife, working with high power rockets and model planes, and bowling. David continues to impress us with his dedication and hard work. We’re glad to have him on the Gypsum team.
“The people here are great, the money pays the bills, and the equipment is new and updated. What more do I need to say?”
David has been driving at Gypsum for almost two years out of our Vanlue terminal. He drives a 2015 Cascadia, which provides him with a peaceful ride while delivering loads. David likes spending time with his grandkids, hunting, sports, and watching NASCAR. We love having David as a part if the Gypsum Family.
“After working for two other large trucking companies, who will remain nameless, Gypsum Express was a breath of fresh air. From day one I was referred to by name and not a number, and to have the higher management say good morning Andy as they pass you in the corridor shows me a company that cares about their employees.
New equipment, a maintenance team that looks after it, a safety program that is not overpowering and people behind you to help get the job done, I could not ask for a better place to work. You are treated like a professional, given the chance to make your own decisions, always knowing you can call in for advice.
Gypsum Express know you have families and a life away from the job, and work hard to get you to those appointments you have to make. I have made a lot of new friends, people I share time with away from the job, whether it be a company picnic or just some of the drivers and their families getting together. I can’t see myself working for any other company, its just too good here.”
-Andrew D Leitch, Baldwinsville Terminal
Andrew has been an incredible asset to the Gypsum Express Team for the past five years. His hard work and dedication have continued to impress us all- we know how lucky we are to have him in the family!
“I have worked for Gypsum Express for a little over eight years. I’ve worked in the van division for most of it. Our equipment is some of the best in the country and with a maintenance department that works with the driver to insure your back on the road as soon as possible. Our benefits packages are some of the best in the industry, along with profit sharing. Our driver managers work with us to insure maximum mileage and home time. Our owner gives us everything we need to succeed in the trucking industry. This company is my home and I plan on retiring here.”
– Jeffrey Barnes, Baldwinsville Terminal
Jeff has been a constant in the Gypsum Express company. His work ethic amazes us all, and his character makes him all the more of a pleasure to work with. We are so thankful for Jeff, and his dedicated service.
“I’ve been an employee for Gypsum Express for 15+ years, and I am presently a tandem driver for them. In my experience, Gypsum Express is the best company I have ever worked for, and for many reasons; the first being my time at home. I am home every weekend and holidays, as well as home time during the week. If I ever need time off for appointments or other obligations I am always able to work it out with my dispatcher. Gypsum also offers its’ drivers a yearly safety bonus program, and a monthly fuel & compliance bonus. These bonuses have allowed me to make an extra $30,000+ in addition to my regular pay in the time that I have been employed here. Gypsum has always provided me top of the line equipment with all the latest technology on board. Maintenance and service has always been a top priority for them, which results in fewer breakdowns. I’m highly satisfied with my job at Gypsum Express and I would recommend anyone looking for a trucking job to give Gypsum Express a chance. You will not be disappointed.”
-Glen Cooper, Baldwinsville Terminal
Having Glen as an employee for the past 15 years has been nothing short of wonderful. Employees like him are hard to come by, we are truly lucky to have him on our team!
I am proud to be a part of the Gypsum Express family. The brotherhood that occurs amongst our fellow drivers, as well as the sense of responsibility to properly represent the company, all contribute to the pride we share in being a part of this team. I take care of my truck and equipment, and I carry myself in a professional manner because I want others to see what a professional company I work for. I have formed many life long friendships with my fellow drivers, our maintenance team keeps my truck in top notch condition, and our management staff looks out for us all- they care about my safety and my time home with my family. Spending time with my wife and children is important to me; together we race/fly RC cars and planes, participate in engine shows, and I am a volunteer firefighter. Driving for a company that cares ensures I don’t miss moments like these. You won’t find this type of brotherhood or family atmosphere anywhere else.
-Justin Decker, Georgetown Driver
After a week out on the road with my husband, I first want to thank Gypsum Express for allowing family members to ride along with their drivers! I have enjoyed the time I spent out with my husband, and there are a few things I felt the Gypsum team and others should know. The drivers here are some of the most professional I have seen; they take such pride in what they do. I have witnessed the bond these drivers share; it is a teamwork I could only compare to that of my time as a full-time firefighter/EMT. Their willingness to help each other and to encourage one another makes me proud that my husband is a part of the Gypsum family; knowing the support he receives from all sides of the company puts my mind at ease while he is over the road. These drivers have a tough job- I am glad that when my husband is away he is still amongst family. Thank you for keeping your drivers safe out there, and thank you for allowing us to be a part of the Gypsum Express family.
-Theresa Decker, wife and ride along partner of driver Justin Decker
Justin and Theresa have been with the Gypsum team a little over a year. We are so thankful to have Justin as a driver, and the support of Theresa and his family.
“What I like best about driving here is the ease of communication between everyone. My driver manager looks after me, and takes care of my needs- I really enjoy working with him, and that means a lot in this industry.”
Luther came to drive for us right out of school, and has been here over a year. He was recently moved into a 2012 Cascadia, which he loves because it is equipped with “all the bells and whistles”. When Luther heads home for the weekend, he enjoys bicycling, listening to live jazz, and participating in church activities. Luther said, “ I think Gypsum is a great company, I am glad I made the right move”, and we are so thankful that such a great driver joined our team!
