Back in Summer of the 90’s I didn’t know what to do, I was fed up with trucks during my time as “truck-driver” or in other languages I had to learn “camionero”, “routier”, “fahrer”, “autista”, etc.. There were several years “stepping on the mud” losing the chance to even see my children coming to this world. I was stopping along the way, hibernating in Summer, I was getting so confused…, on one hand I loved my job and I knew it quite well, my kids started to grow up and I had to be witness of that moment, taking control of it, carrying on with it, but on the other hand I couldn’t do any other job…, and if I had some other skills apart from truck-driving beforehand, I have surely forgotten them.
AND IT HAPPENED…
Summer was over and I stopped fooling around, I had to keep on living…, so that I drained all my savings of that period and I bought one “PEGASO TRONER” truck tractor plus a semi-trailer called “LECIÑENA”. I had to put on overalls to start driving along the roads once again. I met a lot of people on the way and some of them are at present very good friends of mine, like Juanito Gómez for instance.
I was inside of a truck cab during the mid-nineties before I decided to give up the roads and begin a new project in a small office at home. By that time I just could dispose of 5 old and used trucks which helped me to develop such project in the following years.
AND IT KEPT ON HAPPENING….
Time was passing by and the project was coming true thanks to a magnificent group of people who I could live a bunch of experiences with and are still part of my friendships, all types of twists and turns and mainly the financial ones by risky investments to enlarge the company, tireless overwork, etc…, being frank, I haven’t still enjoyed any holiday…, funny, isn’t it??
BUT THERE WERE GOOD TIMES TOO
The best part of those good times were YOU, our customers, amazing people who relied on us and you are still doing it, I don’t want to name all of you because I will leave for sure somebody behind and that wouldn’t be fair whatsoever. YOU are a great and an essential part of all this.
AND YOU AS WELL….
I can’t skip the chance to thank you for helping me to bear this pleasant burden; you were walking with me with a courageous spirit and an invaluable sacrifice not least of which are drivers, mechanics, administrative, traffic and sales staff, the ones you are and the ones you were here…, to all of you…, thanks so much.
At the present time we have been consolidated as an important company within the transport sector, we are able to load everything, to achieve long distances, to distribute all kind of goods…, and all that led by an excellent group of professionals involved in their tasks like real warriors…
A SIGHT TO THE FUTURE…
Although we have to face several difficulties we look to the future with optimism, we are working hard day by day to be bigger, stronger and to go beyond our outlook, to dispose of the best and most modern fleet and workshop assistance, to keep on showing that we are worthy of your confidence when you place your goods on our hands, on our staff’s hands, and that’s a reason of satisfaction, a reason to encourage us to be better …. Thanks to everybody!!!!
