Fleet Engineers, Inc., was recently recognized by the Michigan Legislature for its 50th year of business as an heavy-duty component manufacturer.
A special tribute was presented by Sen. Geoff Hansen, to Fleet Engineers’ CEO, Wes Eklund, during a companywide anniversary celebration held in Muskegon on Dec. 21, 2013. The document was signed by Gov. Rick Snyder, Rep. Marcia Hovey-Wright and Hansen, the company says.
“Fleet Engineers is proud and pleased to have the opportunity to serve its loyal customer base for a 51st year and beyond,” says Eklund. “We look forward to finding new ways to add value to our suite of products and help our customers succeed. Great thanks go to all of our loyal employees and customers that helped us grow along the way. We give thanks, and feel truly blessed by our history and past, and will work and hope that our future can continue to be bright.”
Fleet Engineers was founded by Louis Eklund in 1963. It has grown from a business once operated from a garage to a sprawling campus with four manufacturing plants. Fleet Engineers currently employs approximately 120 workers.
