Nashville-based Premier Global Production, which supplies staging and lighting equipment for clients including Metallica, Chris Stapleton, Tim McGraw, Jake Owen, Lee Brice, Austin City Limits and several country music festivals, is keeping its trucking fleet on the road, even as the live event industry has come to a standstill.
Instead of hauling staging and lighting equipment, the company’s 18-wheelers and drivers are working for common haul companies to move supplies to critically-impacted areas of the United States.
“We are putting our resources to work for America to help our country get through this pandemic,” says Premier Global Production’s President and CEO Troy Vollhoffer. “We are doing our part to keep the U.S. population fed while we all wait out this unprecedented health crisis.”
“We have put part of our fleet to work with Koch Logistics delivering groceries from distribution centers to Walmarts and other grocery stores in Alabama and Michigan,” says PGP Operations Manager Patrick Gail. “We have put the remaining trucks to work moving goods designated as emergency loads for vendors such as Target and Amazon. Those trucks have been moving goods to distribution centers in the Midwest and Northeast.”
“This great country will get back on its feet again,” Vollhoffer says, “sooner rather than later.”
