"We are very excited to launch the second annual National Technician Appreciation Week, highlighting the professional technicians that are so  indispensable to the industry,” said TMC Executive Director Robert  Braswell.  “Technicians are part of the backbone of the trucking industry. Without them, making sure vehicles are ready for service and in safe condition, drivers can't make the deliveries we rely on. This is the perfect time for our industry and the general public to show their appreciation and say, ‘thank you’ to these important individuals and the valuable work they do.”
