History

Founded in 1904 as a drayage business in St. Paul with two horses and a wagon, Murphy now operates 14 facilities with a total of 2.8 million square feet and employs approximately 180 people in Minnesota and Missouri. In 2012 Murphy expanded to Kansas City Missouri to take on new clients throughout the midwest. Starting with just one warehouse and 50,000 square feet, we are expanding and now control three warehouses at nearly 200,000 square feet.
