Tri-State Commodities, Inc. was started in 1971 by Ivan D. (Jack) Shupe.  Jack has been in the trucking industry for almost his entire life.  Over the last 40 years he has watched Tri-State grow from a small one-truck company to a fleet of almost fifty trucks.  Jack is still working at Tri-State although he leaves the operation of the company to his two sons, Grant and Gregg.  Grant and Gregg have worked at Tri-State since graduating from high school.  Grant is a mechanic in the shop and one of the best diesel engine mechanics in the United States.  Gregg works in the shop and he also helps with the daily operation of Tri-State.  Grant’s wife ,Wendy, began working for Tri-State in 1983 and is now the President of the company.  She is vital to the company and takes care of all of the day to day operations.  Grant and Wendy’s son, Chad, has also started working at Tri-State.  Gregg’s sons, Preston and Elliot, are also planning to work for the company, continuing the family tradition.  Tri-State hopes to continue expanding it’s business and plans to keep growing as a company.
