he Dana Companies have been in existence since 1970! The founder of our company, Ron Dana, was a lease operator hauling hazardous commodities in the late 1960's. Observing some inefficiencies and missing services for the customer he was hauling for, Mr. Dana bought some of his own trailers, and started contracting his services. His business sense and service offerings soon required the purchase of more equipment, the hiring of drivers and dispatch staff. DANA TRANSPORT INC was born.
From there, the purchases of tank wash facilities in key chemical markets gave Dana Transport a base of operations to extend their superior service offerings to large and small customers alike.
Observing customer's equipment shortages and understanding the problems of short and intermediate storage capacity needs without making capital expenditures, Mr. Dana offered tanks to customers on lease for various terms. DANA LEASING was born.
Since that time, the companies have experienced substantial growth, but have also grown through acquisition. The Dana Companies are born. That list now includes:
