TE Walrath Team

Where We Have Been

The journey began 1968 when Tom Walrath Sr. became an owner/operator with the purchase of a 1963 Peterbilt log truck. Tom Sr. operated a single truck for almost 20 years, with his wife, Marlene, taking care of all the book work for the company. Then in May of 1987, Tom Jr. officially started driving a truck alongside his dad. Marlene continued to maintain the books, while Tom Sr. and Tom Jr. drove and maintained their own trucks.


Where We Are

Tom Sr. and Marlene are happily retired and Tom Jr. runs the company, but is always happy to hop into a truck if the need arises. Through the years, Walrath has been blessed with growth from the contribution of outstanding and committed employees. Walrath now operates with over 75 employees at the main truck yard, 2 Walrath Landscape Supply locations, and the Walrath Marine division. The acquisition of equipment and the growth of our work force has allowed an even greater ability for the delivery of quality products and service to our highly-valued customers.


Where We Are Going

Walrath has the desire to continue with the small family business values that it’s rooted in, while striving for the highest satisfaction with our customers. We believe family comes first and we will always strive to create close family relationships with our employees. The future may still require adjustments and flexibility, but there are some things we believe should stay the same.

T.E. Walrath is an amazing company. I can't say enough about the company or the people. Chuck & Jackie Bowen are two of the finest people I've met. They moved a 10' x 20' slot car track for me and were the only company that could come up with a solution and plan. Simply the best.

We recently performed a complete renovation on Safeco field, and selected the Walrath team for our trucking, and for blending the custom soil mix for the outfield.
Despite a tight schedule, Walrath was able to complete the project on time and within specifications. I am totally happy with the results we received using them for this project, and won’t hesitate to call them in the future.
