James and John started J & J Baumhardt Trucking Inc. 1979 and J & J Baumhardt Aggregates Inc. in 1990. Today, both companies are owned and operated by James and his sons, Tim, Jeff, Brian Baumhardt. Although John has stepped aside as an owner, he is still an asset to the companies.
In 2011 J&J Baumhardt Trucking Inc. expanded to central Wisconsin. A terminal with 15 tractors & 15 High volume live bottom trailers was set up in Plover, WI for the primary purpose of hauling coal. These tractor/trailer combinations can haul 25 ton or 59.0 cu.yds (water level) and are ideal for just about any aggregate, coal, salt, lime, or agricultural product
In 2013 J&J Baumhardt acquired Abel Landscaping's snowplowing division. The acquisition brings together over 75 years of combined experience and nearly doubles our snowplowing equipment, taking us from 25 units to 45 units.
