“Installing equipment on a chassis is not a simple task,” says Kevin Koester, NTEA senior director. “Model year changes at the OEM level can have a large impact on the ability to quickly and correctly mount bodies and equipment on a chassis. Truck Product Conference is an opportunity for equipment manufacturers and distributors to directly engage chassis OEMs, gaining important technical insights to help the upfitting process.”
NTEA adds this year’s event features a two-day program with opportunities to see the newest vehicles firsthand, participate in Q&A with chassis OEM representatives, and network with commercial vehicle professionals. Chassis manufacturers committed to the event include: Crane Carrier, a Battle Motors Company, Ford Commercial Vehicles, General Motors Fleet, Hino Trucks, International Truck, Isuzu Commercial Truck of America, Kenworth Truck Company, Peterbilt Motors Company and Ram Commercial.
