Art Mulder was born in 1930 as the youngest of seven children to Peter and Hattie Mulder. The family raised cattle and sold the meat to stores throughout Holland, Michigan. Art graduated from Grand Rapids School of the Bible and Music and New Tribes Mission and language school. In1959, Art and his wife, Esther, left as missionaries to Panama with Philip and Peter in tow. Hanz and Laura were born while serving abroad.
Art and his boys worked hard while trusting in God to bring new business, stability, and success. The brothers, Phil, Peter, and Hanz, began dispatching their own loads in1982. By this time, Art Mulder & Sons Trucking (AMST) had 8-10 trucks and a hired man to help in the garage to maintain their equipment. AMST also began purchasing and repairing damaged trucks to sell and for their own use.
In 2008, Mulder Brothers Brokerage was formed. It has enjoyed tremendous growth year after year because of their Service-First mentality.
