Kreilkamp Trucking — a family-owned, Allenton, Wis.-based carrier — recently donated three company tractors to Waukesha County Technical College’s Commercial Truck Driving Program. The tractors, valued at a total of $31,850, will make their permanent home at WCTC and will be put to use beginning with September classes.
Kreilkamp also has leased two other tractors and five trailers to the program. “The generosity of Kreilkamp Trucking has greatly benefited the Commercial Truck Driving Program and our students,” says William Rockwell, the school’s associate dean of transportation technology.
“This is a very rewarding opportunity for those of us at Kreilkamp,” says Amanda Kreilkamp Kirk, the carrier’s recruiting director. “We strive to do what we can for the benefit of the industry, and giving a quality education to new drivers accomplishes just that.”
