Bob Cooper, president of Bisson Transportation Inc., said the company's long-haul freight operation will close, resulting in about 61 layoffs, 38 truck drivers and 23 mechanics, office workers and others, at Bisson's service center garage in Auburn.

Bisson President Bob Cooper said the company could not find enough owner-operator truck drivers to make the long-haul freight business work. It has about 38. It would need about 60 drivers to be "reasonably profitable," Cooper said.
"The recession of 2008 took a lot of capacity out," he said. "Truck drivers parked their rigs, went off and got into other business lines."
Now that the economy has picked up, owner-operators are in great demand, he said.
"We are a relatively small company and we can't offer the sorts of bonuses and other incentives that some of the big national companies are offering to hire these guys."
Though the business was too small to offer bonuses, it was too large to operate without overhead, infrastructure and support personnel, such as dispatchers and accountants, Cooper said. The operation did not have enough money coming in.
"In order to preserve the company, we had to stop the bleeding," Cooper said.
...
Those parts of Bisson are doing well, Cooper said.
The company will shut down its long-haul trucking and heavy-duty truck center over the next two weeks. Cooper said he had heard from competitors looking to hire Bisson's truck drivers and mechanics.
"So this is not something that is going to create some economic upheaval [for those workers]," he said.
Three accountants, two safety/DOT workers, a service writer, a parts manager and a dispatcher will also lose their jobs.
Cooper called the layoffs "the hardest decision I've ever had to make. These were good people, many of them my good friends. I've never had to do this before," he said.
Bisson was founded in 1919. Cooper bought the business from the Bisson family in 1990.

Cooper said the closure would not affect the loan repayment.
