In 1946, in the scenic mountains of North Carolina, George B. Underwood, Jr. and Roy L. Weld formed a trucking company. With only one International truck and a flat trailer, Underwood and Weld Company set out to serve the mining industry of Western North Carolina.
Underwood and Weld currently provide dry bulk transportation services to manufacturers throughout the United States. U&W’s reputation and successful expansion over the years has been based on a company wide commitment to providing the highest quality services for transporting minerals, plastic resin, food grade flour & salt, barley & white cement. This commitment for excellence stems from our communication support within our company.
