SOUTHERN OREGONS’ HISTORY

BOYD GREGORY


In the beginning, it was a way to put food on the table. Logging was in its heyday and it was crucial to keep timber-hauling diesels on the road. So, Boyd and Emma Gregory decided to provide a repair/maintenance service for these rigs and opened Southern Oregon Diesel in 1954.


As the years passed and the business grew, Boyd and Emma were confident that Southern Oregon Diesel was the legacy and the future they would pass on to their sons. Then came the eighties. The timber industry was going through major changes and many of the independent loggers, including their trucks, stood idle.


By that time, the Gregory boys had taken a major role in the daily operations of the business. They decided that if Southern Oregon Diesel was to survive, it would have to diversify. The plan was simple: Find out who your customers are and give them the best service at the most reasonable price.


The plan was a success, and Southern Oregon Diesel is proud to be an integral part in not only keeping local, regional, and national trucking fleets on the move, but also, providing expert diagnostic and repair services to mid size diesel pick-up truck owners.
