In 1896, John Hill began his journey in the foundry supply business with the inception of The Hill and Griffith Company. Hill first became interested in the trade in Georgia, where his father operated a foundry.
With an ongoing investment in research and development, Hill and Griffith has introduced many new technologies and quality supplies since its inception, including form mold release agents and metal and concrete casting lubricants.
1900 – 1995
The Hill and Griffith Company grew alongside the industrial expansion of the United States, supplying a full line of equipment and consumables for green sand foundries.
The company focused its growth on specialized coatings, additives and lubricants for the foundry and die casting industries. A new division, suppling release agents for the precast concrete market grows.
2006 – Present
HG Logistics LLC is founded and grows exponentially.
Quality service made us who we are today.
Our old school, hardworking mentality stems from our 120+ years of doing business the right way.
Hill and Griffith grew tired of unreliable carriers and poor service. Our owner Dave Greek, Jr. and his father got together and brainstormed how to resolve their transportation issues. “If you want something done right, do it yourself,” and HG Logistics LLC was born.
HG Logistics purchased their first trucks, and hired a full time manager to come in and run their transportation division.
2008 – 2014
HG Logistics began using their trucks to help out Hill and Griffith’s customers. Our customer service and reliability spread quickly by word of mouth and customer demand grew too large to handle with just HG’s fleet. HG Logistics became an asset based carrier with brokerage authority. We were brokers before the current boom of call center brokerages. We were around when you were a broker just to offer your customer more service and capacity, and that is how we still operate. Our word and reputation mean something, we are the trucker’s broker and the customer’s reliable trucking company.
2015 – Present
Call center brokerages have given the name freight broker a bad reputation. We aren’t like them in anyway. All of our new hires MUST go on a “ride along” in order to understand what a trucker goes through. We only hire experienced people, and most of our employees have been here 5 years plus. We believe in treating our employees, carriers, and customers with a little TLC.
