Imperial Supplies (www.imperialsupplies.com), a distributor of fleet maintenance products and inventory management programs, recently served as a Platinum Sponsor for the TMC SuperTech 2011 Skills Competition in Raleigh, N.C., held annually by the American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council.
Imperial co-chaired the Fastener Station, where company experts provided fastener product knowledge, hardware, steel assortment boxes and calipers. Ken Waller, Imperial’s senior product manager, supplied the technical input for the test questions and answers.
“SuperTech is a great place to see the technicians shine,” Waller says. “The technician’s role is critical in a ﬂeet’s success, especially with constant changes in regulations, vehicle design changes and tightened budgets. Imperial created a demanding test for the Fastener Station. We know the demands put on the technician are high every day. We are the experts they can rely on, in the real world, throughout the year.”
