Our story began with our grandfather Willie Clarence Black. In 1947, after returning stateside from distinguished service in the United States Army in World War 2, WC bought an old truck and started a hauling company in Marion, North Carolina. After five years, he began hauling freight for several companies and continued to do so until early 1978.
In 1978, Willie Clarence and his eldest son started our current company. The company began operations with only one dump truck, but by 1981, they had six dump trucks, a crawler loader, and several employees. In 1981, W.C. Black and Sons began the operation and management of a private land fill located in western North Carolina. This project continued until 2006. Also in 1981, our company began offering commercial site work services, and in the following year (1982), we began performing residential site work services. In 1985, W.C. Black and Sons, Inc. started performing residential, commercial, and industrial demolition services.
Our current generation learned how to operated heavy equipment at an early age. They acquired the skillset necessary to complete site work services of all types, on all terrains, and in each discipline required. In 2005, our current generation assumed control of the day to day operations of the company. Since 2005, our management team has employed several methodologies to increase efficiency and enhance company capabilities, while improving productivity and decreasing downtime.
In 2008, we began offering and conducting limited Junk and Refuse Removal Services in and around the Charlotte Metro area for both residential and commercial clients. This service complements our already existing hauling services and was an excellent addition to our available services offered.
In 2013, in efforts to reduce emissions, increase efficiency, and improve performance, our company began updating equipment with the goal of reducing downtime and maximizing productivity on demolition projects. Advanced telematics now allow our staff to monitor select machines and view performance and operational data remotely in efforts to keep equipment running at peak condition and therefore enabling projects to be completed on time and or with reduced delays.
W.C. Black and Sons, Inc. has continued to offer exceptional earth moving, demolition, and hauling services, while providing superior quality of work and outstanding client support. As a leader within the industries in which we work, W.C. Black and Sons, will all always strive to enhance our capabilities and provide unmatched customer satisfaction and support.
