Peoples Services, Inc. is a third generation, family owned company that traces its history back to 1914, when it operated in Massillon, Ohio as a storage and moving company. In 1947, Ray Sibila, owner of Sibila Trucking, bought Peoples Cartage and Storage Company. Ray also purchased the Mayflower Agency buildings in Massillon and secured U.S. Mail contracts, hauling U.S. mail on both an interstate and intrastate basis. Peoples Services is still running U.S. Mail routes making them one of the oldest carriers in the country. In 1954 Peoples Cartage had become one of Massillon’s important businesses, entitled to recognition in the “Stark County Story.” In the late 1960’s they branched into public warehousing while continuing to grow by building and acquiring new warehouse facilities. In 1991, Peoples Services, Inc. formed as the parent company of Peoples Cartage and related companies. In 1993, they moved their headquarters to Canton, Ohio.
The company now operates 34 facilities in six states: Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia and provides more than 6 million square feet of public and contract warehouse space.
