Mendon Truck Leasing was founded in 1958 in Valley Stream, New York, where a local service station, owned and operated by Mendy Taffel and Don Resnicoff, began to evolve into a full service truck leasing company when a local bakery requested that Mendy and Don provide all services for their two small walk-in trucks, and proposed to them that a consistent cost should be charged every month, regardless of what services or mechanical repairs the two trucks may have required.
Mendy and Don agreed to the concept with the baker, and successfully provided the service. Mendy and Don then joined their two first names to form "MENDON", and there we have the beginning of Mendon Leasing Corporation.
Over the next five decades, Mendon Truck Leasing and Rental grew to be the finest, and one of the largest truck leasing companies in the New York Metropolitan Area. Through Mendy and Don's leadership, determination and "Customer First" attitude, Mendon evolved from the small service station in Valley Stream to the major full service truck lease provider that it is today.
Because of their dedication to their faithful employees, Mendy and Don transferred ownership of the company to the employees of Mendon in 1997 through an "Employee Stock Ownership Plan". (ESOP) Mendon is now an "Employee-Owned Company".
