Founded as a trucking company over 70 years ago, Ken Lapain & Sons has a proven record of quality work and service. In the 1980s, the company expanded into heavy-duty truck repairs. In the following decade, sandblasting and painting became a cornerstone service. The expectation for high quality work and customer based service was established from the beginning and has allowed the business to grow into what it is today.
The team at Ken Lapain & Sons is comprised of members with a wide variety of skills that hold certifications and licenses in many fields. Many of the team members have over 30 years of experience in their respected fields, allowing them to provide exceptional, quality service efficiently and safely.
In the 1930s, Ken Lapain started working as a farmer and had a team of horses that were employed to help fix township roads. Once he was able to buy a truck, he started hauling coal in the winter and stone in the summer; this was the beginning of the family business. In the 1960s, Jim and Joe Lapain joined “Ken Lapain & Sons” driving trucks. In 1972, the business became Ken Lapain & Sons Ltd., a trucking company. From there, the company expanded to offer heavy-truck repairs in the Essex county area. In the 1990s, sandblasting and painting became part of the business and serviced the local manufacturing sectors. In 1998, a new repair facility was built. Since then, the entire business has continued to grow and expand year after year.
