History

In 1982, Jim and Lavonne Sutton decided to start their own hauling business, so they bought a truck and Sutton Trucking, Inc. was established.  Jim started hauling cement to small Redi-Mix companies and he became very popular because of his great personality and his on-time deliveries. His motto was: “If I’m late, the freight is free”. Within the year, the company began to grow.  They purchased another truck, hired a local driver named Leroy, and their older son, Jeff, bought his own truck and came to work with them.  In 1985, their younger son, John, started working for the company in the Bookkeeping department with Lavonne and then in 1996, John moved into Dispatching to work with Jim.

From 1982 to 2004, the company grew to 25 trucks and 32 employees and Jim and Lavonne decided to slow down and enjoy life. In 2004, they sold the company to their sons and started traveling. Then in 2009, this family-owned company lost their leader, friend, and mentor, Jim Sutton, to cancer. Lavonne continues to be very active in the company helping her sons.

Since purchasing the company in 2004, Jeff and John have grown the Fleet to 60 trucks and 72 employees. In 2013, they opened a new terminal in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and in 2014, they bought property and started construction on another new terminal in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. 

The success of Sutton Trucking, Inc. over the last 34 years is a direct result of the hard work and dedication of its employees, friends, and the family.
