About Us

In September of 1967, Patrick Ennis started our company with two trucks, hauling hogs for George A. Hormel Company. We continue to haul for them today with our refrigerated trailers. We also provide services for JBS Swift, Hillshire/Tyson, Centrum Valley Farms, Monsanto, Fareway, Prestage Foods, and several other major brand shippers.

Pat’s vision, passion for trucking, and his dedication to service built this company. These values, along with our family values, have taken this company to where it is today.

A second generation of the Ennis family has joined in the operations of the company with Michael Ennis and Melinda Anderson, two of Pat’s children, now managing the company. A third generation can also be seen in the wings of our company.

Who We Are

Team Building

Our drivers compete annually in the Iowa Motor Truck Association Truck Driving Championships. Ennis Corp. is an active member of the IMTA and supports many of their events.


Ennis Corp. enjoys partnering with our schools to help educate and share our industry. We provide math and technology lessons from our industry within the classrooms through our trucker buddy program. We spend a day with the drivers’ education classes instructing in the Sharing the Road program and also help sponsor the Adopt-A-Classroom program each year.


We are actively involved and proudly invest in and give back to our community. Each summer, we host our annual Pride In the Heartland Bobtail Truck Show to show pride in our industry and raise money for our local volunteer fire department.


We take pride in honoring our drivers during Truck Driver Appreciation Week, birthdays, and other special events throughout the year. We hold fun team events and celebrate the families behind our team as well.
