(10/28/13) A Marshfield trucking company is getting bigger. Roehl (rail) Transport said today it purchased Brock Cold Storage and Trucking, located at Vesper in Wood County and Owen in Clark County.
C-E-O Rick Roehl said his firm is excited to enter the cold storage market, and his firm recognized the high-quality business-and-customer relationships built by the Brock family. The Brock location in Owen has 120-thousand square feet of cold storage space. The Vesper facility has 38-thousand square feet. The firm will be re-named Roehl Cold Storage, and the Brock trucking operation will merge into Roehl Transport. The company said Brian Brock will remain in a management post, and former Brock employees have been offered jobs with the new firm.
