The South Carolina Timber Producer's Association presents Johnny Ward and W & W Truck & Tractor, Inc. with the President's Award for Leadership and Service to the Logging Profession.
Tree Farmer is purchased by Franklin so Ward decided to get out of the new equipment business and releases his Barko and Tree Farmer franchises to Tidewater Equipment Co.
W & W became the distributor for Barko loaders and VME skidders.
W & W got back in the Tree Farmer business, becoming the South Carolina dealership again.
In December, the business was reconstructed, bringing in Allen Ward, Johnny's son, as part owner of the company.
Ward stops logging and primarily focuses on the business and its customers.
W & W is named the South Carolina Small Business of the Year. W & W took on the Clark Skidder line as Tree Farmer Corporation purchased the Tree Farmer dealership from W & W. Tree Farmer continued servicing South Carolina with a retail branch operating out of W & W facility.
Tree Farmer awarded "Tree Farmer Dealer of the Year" to W & W. Ward also won the first Hatton Award, presented annually by Southern Loggin' Times to the "Logging Equipment Salesman of the Year" in the South.
The business was incorporated and the name changed to W & W Truck & Tractor Inc., owned by Ward and Roy White. W & W Truck and Tractor started in new equipment sales with Wyndham loaders, Dunham Log Hog Hydraulic loaders, and Massey Ferguson farm tractor franchises. Later, W & W became the Tree Farmer logging skidder dealer for South Carolina, a relationship that continued uninterrupted until the middle of 1991.
Ward began a salvage parts business in Moncks Corner, SC called W & W Parts and Repair. This business was situated on 13 acres on Old Hwy 52 South about two miles south of Moncks Corner. About 10 acres were used for salvage parts.
Johnny E. Ward finds success logging in the 1960's growing up around the Andrews, SC area.
