Jeff Engholm:  Owner



 

 

 

 
 

 

 

I was born in Bellingham, Washington in 1967.  I am a life long resident of Whatcom County.  I graduated from Mount Baker High School and attended Bellingham Vocational Technical Institute for 2 years.  While their, I studied the school's Heavy Duty Diesel program. I started work at the age of 16, greasing trucks at night and weekends for Alpine H&S Log.  Jerry Hammer and Bob Starry were the owners.  That job developed into a Heavy Duty Mechanic position, working on all types of logging equipment.

In 1990, I went to work for Bakerview Equipment.  The owners were Del and Rick Bosman. While there, I worked on all types of equipment, and would oversee the shop duties and parts department.

At the end of 1995, Brian and Steve Pederson of Pederson Bros Inc. had a Self Loading log truck for sale, and I purchased it.   My Grandpa Vic Engholm had a Self Loader for years, and I spent many a-days in the summer and weekends riding along with Grandpa. When I was 14 years old I would get up at 4:30 or 5:00 am, and ride my bike 7 miles each day just to ride in his truck.  That's probably the reason I purchased my first Self Loader log truck.

I started out hauling logs, and decided to set my truck up to haul poles too.  When I bought my truck, I never thought I would deliver poles to Des Moines, Iowa for tornado damage.

I recently purchased a new 2010 Kenworth T800.  It's nice to have a dependable truck to go on long hauls at short notice. 

I am active in a lot of things, and most noticeably, the Deming Logging Show.  That also goes back to my Grandpa.  I served as President in 97 & 98, and currently am Vice President. As you can probably tell, my Grandpa was a big influence in my life, and if you knew him, you know why.  And, we could probably share a few stories.

Regards,

Jeff Engholm
