Following a family tradition Chris Van Slyke started a private dump truck business  in 1991.  Driving a 1970 Mack dump truck he delivered sand, stone, and gravel.

As his customer base grew, Chris purchased additional dump trucks and flowboy trailers to haul blacktop.

In 1996 Van Slyke Trucking was incorporated and the fleet continued to grow to it's current size of 50 dump trucks and flowboy trailers.
