Merv's love of trucks started at a very young age. He used to wait at the end of his parent's driveway with lunch pail in hand. A neighbor used to stop on his way by, pick up Merv, and let him tag along. Merv was thrilled to ride in his gravel truck.
In l964 Merv sold his l957 Chev Bel Air and bought his first single axle gravel truck. It was a l964 Chev 60 series. Over the next few years Merv worked as owner operator hauling products for different companies.
In l969 Merv realized he could go out and get the work, then hire people to get the job done. M. Pidherney's Trucking Ltd was incorporated in l971. Merv evolved his company by providing excellent customer service and Pidherney's growth continues to be based on this approach. Everyone at Pidherney's cares about your success.
