NEMA was started by Neal Baines in 1988. He was an independent driver in the 70s and built the business to satisfy a need for our customers. Because of his vast experience on the road himself, he established the business with the driver being a very important asset. NEMA was created to be a niche transportation solution for the Paper Machine Clothing (PMC) industry, which had a need for handling of their product with versatility and care. We pride ourselves on our customer service and our ability to communicate, to do what we promise, and to handle the product damage-free.
