Williams National

In 1984, Oscar “Ozzie” Williams established C&O Equipment, Inc.  C&O provided full service leasing and contract maintenance in the Central Illinois area to compliment his Kenworth Truck dealership founded in the early 1970’s.  Ozzie grew to become one of the leaders in the trucking industry, due to his honesty, integrity and customer commitment.

In 1987, C&O Equipment, Inc. obtained a NationaLease franchise with over 750 available service locations nationwide and Williams NationaLease LTD was soon founded, acquiring all of the C&O Equipment contracts.

In 1998, Williams NationaLease, LTD., was purchased by Sandra “Sandy” Hakes, daughter of Ozzie Williams. It was then certified by the Women’s Business Development Center as a Minority owned company.

In 2007, Williams NationaLease won the prestigious American Trucking Association’s Presidents Trophy for Safety.

To this day, Sandy Hakes continues her father’s passion for customer service and commitment to providing the best service possible.
