UltraEx Celebrates its 30th Anniversary In April 1981, Ernie Holbrook started his first business under its original name, Speedway Delivery and Messenger Service. This year, UltraEx is thrilled to be celebrating 30 years in business as “your same day delivery experts.” In 1961, Ernie began his career in the same day delivery industry as a bike messenger. He moved his way up the ranks learning every aspect of the industry eventually realizing his business potential and desire to start his own company. Twenty years later, Ernie sold his 1956 Harley Davidson to fund his business venture and with help from two of his brothers and two friends, Speedway was officially up and running. A true entrepreneur at heart, Ernie laid a solid foundation on which the business could grow and today UltraEx continues to operate as an employee based corporation. “During the past three decades the business has grown through two mergers and more than twenty five acquisitions. The most significant assets to come out of those business moves are the employees and shareholders that have joined and remained a part of the UltraEx family,” says Ernie Holbrook president and CEO. “It is this ‘Dream Team’ that keeps us on top in an extremely competitive market.” Now, with over 100 employees and 75 company owned vehicles UltraEx thrives on providing outstanding customer service by using state-of-the-art technology, and as our customers agree, the professionalism is unparalleled.
