About A.C. Jones Trucking, Inc. in Central Illinois

 

A statement from our President

Art and Louis Jones started Jones Brothers Trucking in 1946. Their business consisted of trucking, fertilizer lime spreading and dragline service. They started with a single axle dump truck, a lime spreading truck and a dragline mounted on army 6 x 6's. In the ‘50's the company added tandem dump trucks and began hauling Critic Feed in the Midwest.
 
In 1964 it became Jones Trucking, with Art Jones owner. During the ‘60's the first conventional lift crane was purchased. Dozers and backhoes were added to do land conservation work. In 1971 the first hydraulic crane was purchased.

In 1979 the business was incorporated into A.C. Jones Trucking, Inc. A.C. Jones, Jr. became manager in 1980. Trucking of coal became a major focus of the company in the mid 80's. In the early 90's hydraulic cranes and rough terrain cranes were added.

The business today is quite different than it was in the early days. Now we provide crane services along with sales/delivery of rock and sand, through A.C. Jones Trucking and 21st Century Leasing of Illinois. In addition, we also provide, lease man lifts, scissor lifts, telescopic forklifts along with local sales and delivery of rock and sand. Over the years A.C. Jones Trucking, Inc. has provided hauling of material and quality crane service for jobs from Quincy to Champaign and Peoria to Alton. Providing safe and timely crane service for the construction and manufacturing industries has been a priority.
