In 1961, Oakley Groves, Incorporated began as an independent citrus fruit broker in Dade City, Florida. Soon after, Oakley Brothers was established to enter into the harvest and hauling sector of the citrus industry. Over time, Oakley Brothers was merged into Oakley Transport Group our parent company.
In 1986, the Oakley family decided to diversify out of total dependence on citrus, having endured the hard freezes of 1982 and 1984. The newly formed company (Oakley Transport, Inc.) was dedicated to transporting liquid food grade products in the contiguous United States, Canada and Mexico. With Oakley’s commitment to growth and diversification, the family decided to relocate the company’s headquarters to Lake Wales, Florida in 1986.
