Jerr-Dan Corporation, an Oshkosh Corporation company (NYSE:OSK), in conjunction with Worldwide Equipment Sales, has donated a new 2018 Dodge Ram (chassis) with a CHP-approved Jerr-Dan MPL-NG aluminum body to the California Tow Truck Association (CTTA). The new tow truck will be auctioned at the CTTA Industry Leaders & Awards Night dinner on May 10. The funds raised will benefit the CTTA Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to providing training and continuous education to keep tow drivers and the motoring public safe.
“Jerr-Dan is a strong supporter of towing associations that are committed to their local communities and those that foster education and training of our industry,” said Jeff Irr, senior director of sales and marketing for Jerr-Dan. “Together with our valued customers, we continue to work and partner with trade associations that value education, training and opportunity.”
The CTTA Industry Leaders & Awards Night takes place at the Southpoint Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The Rich Chappel Industry Leader Award is given out during the evening event to selected recipients who make a positive influence on the towing industry. This year, CTTA is celebrating 50 years of protecting the California towing industry and providing world class tow operator training.
“As a long-time supporter of the CTTA, Worldwide Equipment Sales is thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to such a special evening like the CTTA Industry Leaders & Awards Night,” said Barry Wilson, general manager of Worldwide Equipment Sales of California.“ The CTTA is dedicated to the training and continuing education of people in the towing industry, and we are fully aligned with those values.”
