As mentioned in that recap, we intentionally plan our open house to fall a week before the Mid-America Truck Show (MATS) and today we recap the event if you also were not able to attend the show.

Our 2018 Open House was a few weeks ago on March 14th. We had a great turnout, great food, and got to network with industry experts. This was our fourth annual open house and we greatly appreciate all those who came out despite the frigid temperature! 

Customers, partners, vendors, and many others in the trucking industry were present. We had a display of an Ottawa truck going through an entire refurbishment. Much of the inside was replaced with all new equipment and the cabin got a much-needed update as well with a new driver's seat that was installed.
