32 years and counting

Bob sets standards high for what it takes to be a great driver.” ~ Brian Burke Safety Director for Lawrence Tranportation Company

Bob Lindgren, of Kasson, has driven over 4 million miles in a truck; all with the same company. After 32 years and many miles, he still loves what he does. 

Lindgren was recently in the running for the Minnesota Trucking Association’s Driver of the Year title in January after being recognized as last year’s March Driver of the Month. 

Although Lindgren did not get the “Driver of the Year” title, he is still widely respected by the company. 

“At Lawrence we refer to Bob as ‘Smiley.’” He always has a smile on his face and a positive vibe about him.  We are so lucky to have him as part of our Lawrence family.  He is one of our longest employed drivers and we consider him family,” said a representative of the company Lacie Tingesdal.
