Over 50 years of
Josef and Elena Sepos immigrated to Australia in 1948. Their first foray into the transporting business followed soon after, with the purchase of a small parcel of land and a 5-tonne Chevrolet truck. Joe built the family home from mining props and in 1955, secured his first official contract supplying timber to the local Masonite factory. Elena raised their three children and cultivated chickens, selling them to Fred Ray, who would later be absorbed by Steggles.
The family values and commitment to excellence in transport continued when Joe Jnr returned from national service and carried on the family business, acquiring a license and soon after, his first truck, and J Sepos and Sons Transport was born. The steady growth of the company from these humble beginnings has seen them diversify into various livestock, refrigerated, tautliner, tanker, tipper and logistics divisions.
The JS Group now consists of eight privately-owned companies, directed by Managing Director Joe Sepos and run by his four sons. The primary business remains as road transport, while in addition to the group companies, the company is complemented by several value-adding core businesses, including beef cattle properties, a free-range egg farm and Stroud & District Golf Club. Throughout the businesses, there are more than 200 staff members employed, including drivers, mechanics, logistics staff, trainers, chicken catchers, administration and accounting staff. The businesses remain focused on their original family values, prioritising hard work and customer service at each step of their processes.
