About Our Owner


Bob Wojcik grew up in Hammond, IN, and relocated to Valparaiso, IN. Bob received his BA in Electrical Engineering Technology from Purdue University and his MBA from Loyola University Chicago. He began his career as an Engineering Coordinator, moving into other roles including Plant Engineer, VP of Operations, Factory Director, and VP of Manufacturing for several renowned corporations.

Bob's responsibilities included overseeing engineering design, manufacturing automation projects, safety, quality customer service, P&L, and costs and culture for six manufacturing plants with a combined 1,500 employees.

He even led a dumpster dive with his team in Michigan City, IN, to identify recyclable materials that were commonly thrown away. This was a pivotal moment in accelerating the plant's recycling program.

Bob chose to partner with The Junkluggers because of CEO Josh Cohen's vision for the company. He's proud to provide Northwest Indiana with a needed eco-friendly junk removal service, provide good job opportunities for locals, and partner with local charities throughout the community. He enjoys helping others, and a partnership with Junkluggers allows him to do this every day.

Bob has two sons, Brandon and Tyler. He couldn't be more proud of his boys and how they each help people in their professions. In his free time, Bob Wojcik rides bikes, plays golf, kayaks, and spends as much time outside as possible. He also enjoys traveling to the Caymans, Mexico, the Caribbean, Eastern Europe, and other destinations across the globe. Bob's known for his mean chocolate chip cookies, brownies, Polish Kolachki's and molten lava cakes.
