A Few Words

Frank Pender, Owner/ President of Star Bulk has worked in the dry bulk trucking industry since 1972.   In 2003, Frank embarked on his lifelong plan to build his own trucking business.  What began as a three truck operation hauling cement in New Braunfels, TX has grown into a thriving fleet of over 180 trucks.  Much of our success can be attributed to the hard work of our General Manager, Bill Sanders and our management team of experienced professionals as well as our driver team, many of whom have been with our Company since its origin.  Our entire team has one major goal, and that is to provide the best service possible to our valued customers.



Star Bulk Cement and Lime Division is managed by: Gilbert Bocanegra (New Braunfels Terminal), Gordon Whitcombe (Spiro, Oklahoma Terminal), & Brenda Stewart (Midlothian Terminal), as well as our team of dispatch, maintenance and driver professionals.  The Cement Division consists of over 60 units servicing in and around Texas.





Star Bulk Sand Division is managed by truck owner and business partner, Gene Tipton.  We have two dispatchers who are available to our customers and drivers 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.  These dispatchers are very knowledgeable in oil field services and are always available to answer any questions concerning our sand customers’ deliveries.  The Sand Division has been one of our fastest growing operations and it now consists of over 60 units in and around Texas.
