|Charles D. “Chuck” Zeisloft
happily lives out his dream everyday!
When Chuck was a boy growing up in Hazleton, PA his father worked for a coal company. Everyday Chuck loved to watch the trucks take away their loads of coal and he always dreamed of having his own fleet of trucks one day.
In 1963, Chuck Zeisloft bought his first truck, moved to Gloucester County,
| New Jersey, and began hauling blocks
for the EP Henry Corp.
By 1988, the company had grown to 11 trucks and about 70 percent of
the business was still generated through EP
Henry. During this time, another of Chuck’s dreams came true
as his son, Chuck Jr., took an active interest in
the business. Together they saw the need to establish a broader
range of manufacturer relationships. The father and son team proceeded
to expand their business adding the equipment necessary to satisfy
a diversifying customer base. Although EP
Henry remains a very important part of the Zeisloft business
the company now provides services to other regional aggregate material
and concrete product manufacturers such as the Old Castle Companies.
Today, Zeisloft Trucking supports a fleet of 30 power units, including 15 tractors, 8 boom-trucks and 4 tri-axle dumps. In addition, other equipment includes 12 bulk tank trailers and 7 flat trailers containing either boom-loaders or mobile forklifts.
Chuck Zeisloft continues to grow his business and apply his talents as a real estate investor in a hotel complex located in St. Thomas, U.S.V.I.. An example of his real estate interests can be found at Pavilions and Pools Villa Hotel.
In 1998, young Chuck Jr. branched out to complement the growing fleet and created a new enterprise he called Rock Products. Taking advantage of the truck operation’s hauling capabilities; Rock Productssupplies contractors, landscapers and the general public with many varieties of decorative stone, boulders, top soils, a variety of mulches, architectural and hardscape products, and clay brick. Rock Products is now one of the regions largest distributors of EP Henry paving stones and other hardscape products.
This second generation enterprise continues to thrive by incorporating strong family values and caring relationships with a keen sense for the market and a deep desire to consistently provide the highest level of quality transportation services.
