Principals: Wayne and Brian Dobush
Wayne, co-owner of the company, built W-K Trucking Inc. from the ground up. He began as a tank truck driver out in the field for many years until the company grew by adding several more trucks to the fleet. His position then changed into strictly dispatching and managing the company from the office. Wayne oversees the following areas of the company: maintenance of all equipment, development and implementation of safety policies and procedures, hiring and training of new employees, dispatch, supervision of administration, shop maintenance and mechanic personnel. Wayne, and brother Brian, both share the responsibility of being the liaison to oil company personnel ensuring open lines of communication to increase and maintain customer satisfaction. W-K Trucking Inc. grew rapidly between 2005 and 2008 due to Wayne and Brian’s belief in forward-thinking and diversification. They recognize that the oilfield is an ever-changing industry that requires constant adaptation.
Brian, co-owner of the company and brother to Wayne, has fulfilled the role of diversifying W-K Trucking Inc. Brian began in the industry as a tank truck driver himself for over ten years and experienced the rise and fall of the oilfield industry through the ‘90s. That experience taught him that a company should be diversified to remain successful. Brian spearheaded the building and development of the methanol storage facility and looks for opportunities to market specialty chemical hauling such as methanol, solvents, degreasers and condensate. He constantly strives to improve the company and maintain a level of customer service excellence. Brian oversees the following areas of the company: hiring and training of new employees, acquisition of additional work and work areas, requests for proposals, scheduling, maintenance of equipment and work areas, development and implementation of safety policies and procedures, dispatch, supervision of administration, shop maintenance and mechanic personnel. Wayne and Brian share the workload and responsibility of running the company and are scheduled alternating one week on and one week off to ensure management is available at all times reinforcing their commitment to the company.
