August is Driver Appreciation Month at Detroit Diesel

Detroit, MI – Detroit Diesel today announced that in recognition of all of the hard-working truck drivers that keep our economy rolling, it has designated August as “Detroit Diesel Driver Appreciation Month.”

During the month of August, truck drivers and owners will have the exclusive opportunity to visit the Detroit Diesel manufacturing facility for a special presentation, lunch and a behind-the-scenes plant tour. Guests will also receive official Detroit Diesel merchandise and an information packet.

“Detroit Diesel drivers are truly the backbone of our business because they are actually experiencing the engines at work, every day,” said Brad Williamson, manager, engine and component marketing for Detroit Diesel. “Our Driver Appreciation Month is our way of saying thank you to all of our hard-working customers and potential customers.”

Detroit Diesel’s state-of-the-art facility manufactures the DD13®, DD15® and DD16® family of engines. The site has received recognition for its environmentally-friendly production processes, most recently earning the 2011 Michigan Green Leader Award from the Detroit Free Press.
