O'Daniel Trucking Company has been a family owned and operated business, since 1973.
Hill O'Daniel, a well known business man in the area, founded the company with his son-in-laws Bill Edwards and John Mann, and nephew John O'Daniel. Hill's daughter, Barbara O'Daniel Mann, managed the office and dispatched trucks
Throughout the years, several O'Daniel cousins and family members
were employed by O'Daniel Trucking.
John O'Daniel and his family left the company to pursue their own business.
Hill announced his retirement and decided to step down. John & Barbara Mann also retired. Hill's grandson, Brent Edwards, took the reins and obtained his uncle and grandfather's ownership.
The company sold its concrete operations in Carmi, Albion and Grayville, IL.
Also, included in the sale was the sand and gravel pit located in Maunie, IL.
2008 to Present
Brent & Bill Edwards oversee all operations of the business. The company still provides their customers with concrete construction, asphalt paving, aggregate sales and dump truck services. John Mann continues to oversee the asphalt operations.
The office building on Route 14 was put up for sale, so that the company could consolidate into one location. All business operations now take place at the asphalt plant in East Carmi on Airport Road.
In the Future
Look for our new office and shop building to be erected in East Carmi just South of Airport Road.
