The year was 1969, Mike Allec had been driving a truck for a living; after 11 years he decided to venture out on his own. In 1972 Mike relocated to Riverside and started Allec Materials & Trucking, Inc. The business had been operating out of a small building for three years and he noticed there was vacant land across the street that seemed to be a much better fit. In 1975 Mike purchased 33 undeveloped acres in Riverside and established three businesses on 12 of those acres.
