Ralph Moyle, Inc. Timeline
In 1945, during WWII, the idea of RMI began. Ralph was only 13 years old at this time and began hauling grapes for local farms for Welch’s.
- After serving two years in the U.S. Army, Ralph returned to Mattawan and pursued a degree in business from Western Michigan University (WMU).
- During his time at WMU, Ralph wrote a paper outlining his ambition to own a small trucking company and predicted that one day he would turn it over to his sons.
Ralph purchased the first tractor, a Ford F-8, for the Ralph Moyle Semi Fleet.
Ralph’s record of superior customer service landed the Coca-Cola contract and we continue to do business with them today!
Ralph’s fleet grew to include more than 30 tractors and expanded business services such as refrigerated transportation and food-grade liquid bulk transportation.
Under the direction of Mike Moyle, RMI began operating the building as a public warehouse.
Ralph’s youngest son, Jon Moyle, joined the company full-time as a dispatcher.
RMI conducted our first value-added project for Coca-Cola. This was the beginnings of what we know as our co-packing division.
RMI’s co-packing division was moving at full steam with daily production of in-store display pallets, club packs, and dog bone projects.
RMI’s Driver Apprenticeship Program was validated by the U.S. Department of Labor as a Registered Apprenticeship Program.
