Stech Transportation Company
Stech Group, Inc.

For over 70 years, The Stech Group has long been a family owned and operated company proud of their heritage and service in the community. Started in 1935, Frank Stech Sr. began this warehouse, transportation and distribution business as a local cartage company with one truck. Many of its first customers were the canning and food industries headquartered in nearby Camden, NJ. As the Stech Group's reputation for quality, honesty and value grew, so did its mission. Opening their first warehouse in 1955, they were quickly able to establish themselves as an integral part of their customers' supply chain.

In 1979, Frank Stech passed control on to his sons, William Stech and Frank Stech, Jr. With the growth of the business, Frank and Bill split company responsibilities with Bill heading the warehouse company (Standard Warehouse and Mid-Atlantic Distribution) and Frank heading the trucking and logistics companies (F&W Transportation, Mid-Atlantic Logistics and Stech Transportation).
