NTEA hits 50

Successful Dealer Staff February 6, 2014

NTEAThe NTEA, the Association for the Work Truck Industry, is celebrating 50 years of serving the work truck industry.

The Association started in 1964 in Cincinnati, Ohio, as the Truck Equipment & Body Distributors Association with six member companies. In 1978, the growing Association moved to its current headquarters to suburban Detroit, the heart of the nation’s automotive industry. In 1979, based on its changing industry-wide perspective and service offerings, changed its name to the National Truck Equipment Association, or the NTEA.

The legislative office opened in Washington, DC, in 1988 to represent member interests on Capitol Hill.

The NTEA, now 1,600 member organizations strong, is the leading organization representing the work truck industry.

“We’re dedicated to continue representing the hard working group of individuals and companies who have helped build the Association and the industry into what it is today,” says Steve Carey, NTEA executive director. “As we begin our next 50 years, we will continue to provide the tools and services to help our members succeed.”

The celebration will culminate during The Work Truck Show 2014, North America’s largest work truck event, March 5-7, 2014 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

In recognition of its 50-year celebration, NTEA says members have graciously contributed historical images of their businesses through the years – showcasing the work truck industry’s evolution from the 1960’s to modern times. The photo gallery can be found HERE.
