Ervin Hansen started the company, then known as Hansen Egg Company, as a produce business on Griswold's Main Street. As business grew and expanded, Ervin started transporting eggs for other dealers in the area. Ervin retired in 1981 and his son, Craig, took over the business.
Growth and Change
Over the years the business changed considerably as it moved into egg production, processing, warehousing, and distribution. Eventually the production and processing of eggs disappeared and Craig shifted focus to transporting eggs and other refrigerated products while growing the fleet.
It's a rare occasion that eggs are inside the trailers. Today, Hansen Company hauls refrigerated and dry products of all kinds throughout the United States.
