HIRING and retaining key employees, maximizing shop efficiency, and upgrading industry professionalism were among the topics covered at the 41st annual National Truck Equipment Association convention.
Throw in an appearance by former Vice-President Bob Dole and an array of new truck bodies and truck equipment at The Work Truck Show, and the industry had plenty to see and do.
At the annual President's Breakfast, Mike Frizzell took over as president of the association. He is president of Royal Truck Body — River City in Sacramento, California. He takes over from Rod Robinson, president of Waltco Truck Equipment.
Here are some of the highlights from this year's event, held March 1-4 in Indianapolis.
