Derek Morton of Salty Trucking Co. (Bountiful, Utah)
Salty Trucking Co. was never intended to be a business. Rather, it started as motivation, though some may call it a bribe, to get an unruly, truck-loving second grade boy in my elementary class to behave and complete his work. To my surprise, it worked! The student behaved and earned a truck, and in me a love of building wooden trucks was sparked. Today, I offer 12 different types of handmade wooden trucks that have been shipped all over the United States. As an educator, I use a percentage of the profits from every sale towards teaching local elementary-age students about woodworking, metalworking, drafting, and CAD. Thanks for helping support local education!
