Commercial vehicles: The 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.

Through the years, the association has grown its capabilities to include:
• Technical services for engineering, installation, compliance and certification support
• Advocating on behalf of the work truck industry to protect and advance the industry¹s regulatory and legislative interests
• Enhancing our market data and research offerings to help member businesses succeed
• Offering education, training and networking opportunities
• Delivering industry information on demand

“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,” said 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. The Work Truck Show ranks among Trade Show Executive magazine’s Gold 100 Honorees, Class of 2013.

In recognition of NTEA’s 50-year celebration, NTEA 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.
