Epes Announcement

From the Epes family:

It is with deep sadness and sorrow that we announce that one of our Epes family members, Kevin Rickansrud, Executive Vice President of Operations, unexpectedly passed away this past weekend. Without question, Kevin was truly passionate about his work and had a deep, caring impact on all those who knew and/or worked with him at Epes, regardless of position.  Kevin will be sorely missed and our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family.

As a community, we ask that you keep the Rickansrud family in your thoughts and prayers through this difficult time.

Guilford County Schools Career Fair 11/15/16

Epes Transport participated in the Guilford County Schools Career Exploration Fair on November 15, 2016 from 4 pm – 7 pm at the Greensboro Coliseum Special Events Center. The event exposed middle school and high school students to the various industries within our area and provided information on the path to take to obtain the position desired. This was a great opportunity for Epes to engage the students in discussions about our driver and non-driver positions that are within our company. The biggest attraction was the tractor truck that the students (and parents) were able to get in and explore.

Epes employees Matthew Bryant – Local Driver, Tommy Wilson – Greensboro Maintenance Manager and Tamara Anthony – Director of Human Resources were in attendance.
