Curt Waldie and Larry Lee Hofmann knew each other all their lives, Waldie said.
“We were both involved in trucking in different areas and came together to start our own company and grow,” he said.
Hofmann Trucking was founded in 1999 with three trucks and four employees. Today, it has more than 110 trucks and 150 employees, Waldie said.
“We also have offices in Tioga, North Dakota, and Douglas, Wyoming, and Fargo, North Dakota, but our corporate home is Jamestown, North Dakota,” Waldie said.
Larry Lee Hofmann passed away in 2021.
“We are continuing on the tradition and service that we’ve always provided,” Waldie said.
Waldie, a native of Marion, North Dakota, is happy to have Hofmann Trucking located in Jamestown.
"This is home,” he said. “We’re proud of Jamestown and everything it does. Our business, with our repair shop and our trucking business, supports many Jamestown businesses by getting goods and service transported in and out of the Jamestown area.
“We work with all the major manufacturers in the area through all the times of growth and some slowdowns in the economy of the past 23 years, through pandemics. We have excellent employees who work hard and have been loyal to our company and helped us grow to where we’re at today and also support from fellow Jamestown businesses.”
Hofmann Trucking offers over-the-road trucking services and some local truck repairs.
“If it’s moved by a truck, we are usually able to assist in the transportation and logistics coordinating of pretty much all products,” Waldie said.
He credits employees for the success of the business and partnerships in Jamestown as well.
“... we’ve been able to grow the company but that’s only because of the hard work of all our employees and the support of the community,” he said. “We’ve been through many different changes in 23 years.”
He said Jamestown has helped sustain the company and they appreciate the support.
“We hope that we’ve been a good employment source for many in the area, which we have a lot of long term, 15- to 22-year employees,” Waldie said. “So It’s just nice to have a town like ours that we are always trying to grow and see do better, which helps us draw good employees also that want to live in a community like Jamestown.”
Hofmann Trucking is located at 8060 36th St. SE.
