Who We Are
James and Jerry Dixon founded Dixon Bros., Inc. in 1960 with one customer and a truck transporting propane. Both lifelong residents of Weston County, Wyoming, the Dixon brothers understood there was a future in highway transportation of products and built their tanker and dry bulk carrier operation. They incorporated the business in 1961, and operated out of an office in Jim’s home. As they grew the business they required more office space. The Dixon brothers moved to a location near the current day Wyoming Refinery. Shortly after with business still growing, they moved once more to the current location about 1 mile east of Newcastle, Wyoming. The most recent expansion of the Newcastle, Wyoming facility saw the enlargement of the shop area, larger parts storage area, drivers' lounge and the building of a new corporate office building.
From those simple beginnings, Dixon Bros., Inc. has grown to become a leader in the bulk carrier industry. With 155 employees, 120 trucks, 300 trailers, and nine terminals, today the Dixon Bros., Inc. service area includes Wyoming, Western South Dakota, Montana, North Dakota, Colorado, Idaho, Western Nebraska, Western Minnesota and into Alberta and Manitoba, Canada.
In 2002, Jim Dixon purchased his brother’s share of the business after Jerry passed away. After nearly 60 years in the trucking industry, Jim has sold his interest in the company to his children. The day to day operations are now shared by his daughter, Suzette Miller, and his son, Jimmy Dixon. Jim is still a daily fixture at the office to lend his moral support and wisdom whenever needed. Jim’s grandchildren and son-in-law also serve key positions in the business to ensure Dixon Bros., Inc. future as a family owned and family run business.
Community service has always been a part of the Dixon Bros., Inc. successful business model. Both Jerry and Jim understood customers were the lifeblood of a successful business and enjoyed meeting their customers and spending time in their communities.
