“Premier is a proud company and operates under the same basic founding principles as Lenco,” said Premier president Kevin Berry. “The companies mirror dedication to safety, customer service and employee values.”

“Lenco is an employee-driven proud family operation that was founded over 40 years ago,” added Coburn. “We have had success at all levels throughout our history and our next step to success is to transition our family business into Premier’s family. Our drivers are among the best in the industry and having them join the Premier group will further enhance their ability to excel in their careers. We have strength in numbers and with Premier’s enhanced focus on infrastructure, technology and corporate footprint, this merger is the natural progression next step for Lenco.”

  • Hello, my name is Jeff Nettledon and I started driving straight truck when I was in my teens and then moved on to heavy truck, heavy equipment in my twenties. By the time I transitioned to AZ tractor trailer I was 28 and spent the following year bouncing back and forth from truck to equipment operation. Finally about five and a half years ago, I joined the Lenco team and I just wanted to say, out of all the places I’ve worked, I’ve never experienced such a level of care and concern for not only the customer but more importantly, us employees. With that all said, all I have left to say is thank you to Lenard Coburn and the Lenco team!

  • Thats wonderful news Lenard, congrats to you. Hard work does pay off for sure. Now you and your family will get to enjoy the next phase/ chapter of your lives. Thanks for sharing.

  • Two Great Leaders of two Great Companies!

    All the very best gentlemen for both your continued success as Industry Leaders.

    This is a perfect combination of continued commitment and professional performance to service, safety and the employees of both your good companies.

  • I have worked for Lenco for almost 10 years. It has by far been the best company I have worked for. I wish nothing but success for this merger in the future years to come. This in my opinion is an excellent move for all involved parties.
