Port Angeles/Forks: Trucking firm founded in 1951 to quit today

Erdmann R Trucking Inc. of Port Angeles and Forks will shut down today due to the poor economy, owner Ron Erdmann said Thursday.

Erdmann, 52, of Port Angeles, said he took over the heavy hauling trucking business from his father.

The company, 2010 W. Highway 101, Port Angeles, has been in business since 1951.

Erdmann said the business employs between 16 and 18 people, but up to 26 people worked for the company during better economic times.

“It is a rough time find work and be in business,”‘ Erdmann said Thursday.

The company operates 26 trucking rigs, he said, noting no auction is being planned.
