Mike Poppe, an Arizona native was born in 1959 and grew up around the trucking industry. He made his first heavy haul move as a teen, and worked as an owner operator in the early years of his career. In 1984, at the age of 24, Mike made the decision to establish his own company. He purchased a 1967 Kenworth a 60-ton lowboy with booster axle, and Precision Heavy Haul, Inc. was born.

Precision Heavy Haul’s first customers were from the construction industry hauling earth moving equipment.  His reputation for quality work and on time delivery quickly spread throughout the industry.  With the increase in workload came the need for expansion, both in personnel and equipment.  In 1986, Mike designed and had built the first trailer to legally move Caterpillar’s 245 excavators without the costs and delays of partial disassembly.

The company has continued to grow and become more diversified, largely due to the fact that Mike has been able to find a nitch in meeting specialized equipment demands that other local companies do not offer.
