Team Hardinger is changing owners but remaining locally owned.
“Our former owner Bill Schaal started the company with a partner of his in 1969 and he’s 89 and a half. So he was seeking a succession plan. He hired me about seven and a half years ago to run the company as its general manager and that became a natural fit.”
Harold “H.” Bender has served as the company’s general manager since 2008 but assumed ownership on Friday. Team Hardinger is a trucking warehouse, integrated services, and truckload brokerage company based in Erie with a satellite office in Grove City.
Bender expects the transition to be seamless for clients and customers. Using technology he plans to continue refining the business with an eye toward the future.
“We have a strategic plan that has us growing all three service units, the trucking, the brokerage, and the warehousing and integrated services.”
