Addition of pneumatic dry bulk trucking company opens new markets for heavy haul specialist in Indiana

Fraley and Schilling (F&S), headquartered in Rushville IN, recently acquired KBT Enterprises, a pneumatic dry bulk trucking company based in Fishers IN.

KBT has established a reputation for exceptional service while hauling bulk materials like lime kiln dust, dry bulk cement and fly ash in the Greater Indianapolis area since 1995, the company said. KBT will operate as a subsidiary of Fraley and Schilling Holdings. The acquisition supports the growth of home daily trucking opportunities for families in Fraley’s operating area.

“KBT’s culture, reputation, and market aligns with Fraley and Schilling’s mission to be the first choice among premier drivers and transportation professionals,” said Chris Seals, Fraley’s president. “At F&S, our priority is to intentionally grow our company in a way that puts our people first. With this new acquisition, we will leverage our fleet advantages to build and grow the existing team at KBT.

“We are excited to expand our existing presence in the pneumatic tank market and bring our hallmark lightweight advantage to a new part of the industry.”

F&S provides trucking, warehousing and logistics. Its trucking arm specializes in deploying lightweight equipment for hauling heavy products. The company employs 750 transportation professionals across the country, with more than 300 in Indiana.
