Adair Native Growing His Business
This article first appeared in issue 20, and was written by Staff.
Mr. "P" Express adding 20 1999 Volvo trucks to fleet
Allan Mercer Parnell, President of Mister "P" Express, Inc., Jeffersonville, Indiana, announced that the company has ordered twenty 1999 VNL64T Volvo trucks, to be delivered in June, 1998.
The addition represents a $2,000,000 investment, Mr. Parnell said. In addition, the company is adding 20 air-ride trailers this year.
"They are certainly the state of the art in technology-drivers should pay us to drive them," he laughs.
Mr. Parnell attended Breeding and Adair County High Schools. After a career in management at Appliance Park, he established Mr. "P" Express, Inc., whose bright red trucks with their distinctive Mr. "P" markings now total 50 units.
He keeps in touch with Adair County, and hopes to help some of the area's newly unemployed citizens find work in his industry. But that's not his only aim. His main purpose is to hire good drivers.
"You don't have to move from Adair County to drive for me," Mr. Parnell says. "Believe me, I know how hard that would be."
