CCC Celebrates 70 Years


CCC announces the 70th anniversary of the company’s founding.

CCC has a long, rich heritage dating back to World War II when Commercial Carriers Corporation formed CCC, a division to help General Motors convert from automobile manufacturing to 100% war effort production. In 1946, Don Beveridge and Willian H. Pettibone purchased CCC, becoming a millwright and rigging operation servicing the automotive sector. In 1961, William H. Pettibone became sole owner of CCC, and CCC remained a family-owned company for the next 53 years as sons Bill Pettibone, Jr. and Michael Pettibone purchased CCC from their dad in 1990. This continued the legacy of success through quality, experience, people and safety. That same legacy continued in 2014 when Bill Pettibone turned ownership over to Stephen Fragnoli, Steve Teper, Joel Lewandowski and Brad Kimmel.

“Over the course of the last 70 years, CCC has evolved with the times, experienced significant growth and gone through challenging economic times, yet we have not lost sight of our core values that have always been the foundation of CCC,” said Stephen Fragnoli, President and CEO. “We are proud of the CCC legacy, and even more excited by the opportunities that lie ahead.”

CCC’s success is dependent upon its reputation that dates back to the 1940’s, and today its core values are the same as they were 70 years ago:

  • Keep people safe
  • Act with integrity
  • Tell the truth
  • Keep commitments
  • Treat people with dignity and respect
  • Promote positive relationships
