Busby History - Junk Hauling and More:
Busby’s history can be traced back to the early 1900s. Busby, Inc. was originally started by Alvin C. Busby. In 1912 Alvin moved his blacksmith shop to Ellensburg, Washington from Bakersfield, California. He continued his work shoeing horses, repairing and producing farm tools, and installing rims on buggy wheels. In time Alvin’s son, Alvin Glenn Busby, joined the family business. He helped diversify the business into a manufacturer of automatic coal stokers as they continued to repair farm equipment. In 1952, Alvin C. Busby’s grandson, Gene Busby, was apprenticed into the business. The Busbys' business continued to grow; in 1975 they outgrew their hometown facility and made the move to Moses Lake, Washington, settling near the former Larson Air Force Base. Busby, Inc. continued to expand, fabricating snowplows and equipment for the Department of Transportation, pony trailers, drill rigs, and substructures for the North Slope. Due to economic hardship, Busby, Inc. closed its doors in 1983. Twenty-two years later in October of 2005, Busby Junk Removal opened its doors and has continued business with an emphasis on recycling.
