Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.

Warren Buffett
The trucking industry is changing at a breathtaking pace and the faster technology advances, the more it is difficult to keep up with. It is important to master these technologies by adapting to the changes, and to adopt them where possible.
Our specialists in commercial fleet maintenance make it a point to dance on the cutting edge of information by consulting and analyzing various manufacturers’ resources on a daily basis. This way, they can provide the latest information and their technical know-how to key people in your business, allowing them to make informed choices.

Our technical trainers simplify the teaching of new technologies to mechanics through proven training techniques, using the best audiovisual equipment, and the latest pedagogical documentation available.

Our training programs, developed for the mechanics and maintenance supervisors of heavy Class 8 vehicles are made available in both “basic” and “advanced” levels, favouring the improvement of best maintenance practices and performance by all of your maintenance staff.

Our mission is to :

  • Make all relevant information available to the trucking industry stakeholders in all areas of the industry
  • It is also imperative to ensure the veracity and relevance of all data circulated during our informational or technical training workshops to maintain an exceptional level in the quality of information disclosed
  • Help the trucking industry make our roads safer by promoting the best preventive maintenance practices, through the reduction of maintenance costs by minimizing vehicle maintenance needs.
