Workers at Nick Strimbu, Inc. in Brookfield Township celebrated Donald Trump's election win with pizza.

BROOKFIELD TWP., Ohio (WKBN) – Truck drivers in Brookfield Township were treated to lunch by their boss to celebrate the presidential race coming to an end.

Bill Strimbu, president of trucking company Nick Strimbu, Inc., says he fell asleep around 1:30 a.m. Then he got a few phone calls to tell him that Donald Trump had been elected president.

“I’m very pleased by the results,” he said. “I bought ’em all lunch today!”

It’s the result the company was expecting and to celebrate, Strimbu bought pizzas to feed the workforce.

“We’ve had some rough times the last few years with the economic conditions in this country, and we were really pulling for my Trump when he became the front runner and when he won, we had to do something to celebrate,” he said. “There is not a frown in this entire building or in any of my truck drivers, that’s for sure.”

Several issues Strimbu has with the Obama administration include what he calls a “socialistic agenda,” the immigration policy and the welfare system.

“My employees pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes and they’re tired of working hard and not getting anywhere. They haven’t gotten raises in a few years,” he said.

Strimbu says the company has waited six months to order new trucks due to the presidential uncertainty. Wednesday morning, with Trump’s victory, they started looking at pricing for those vehicles.
