The National Tank Truck Carriers (NTTC) announced today that Ridewell Suspensions has been named its exclusive sponsor of NTTC’s Advocacy Program for the next three years. The NTTC’s mission is to champion safety and success in the tank truck industry through advocacy and education, and Ridewell Suspensions plans to build on that mission. NTTC’s advocacy efforts are designed to create greater governmental awareness of those specific issues that impact tank truck carriers.
“On behalf of the entire membership, we are extremely grateful for Ridewell’s generous support of our advocacy efforts,” said NTTC President Daniel R. Furth. “Advocacy is the very reason we’re celebrating 75 years here in Washington DC and our ongoing success is greatly strengthened by Ridewell’s sponsorship. Our carriers look forward to working closely with Ridewell’s leadership team as we advance our first-class advocacy presence with our Call on Washington program and the many other advocacy-related events throughout the year.”
“Ridewell is proud to support NTTC and its Advocacy program,” said John E. Millsap, President of Ridewell Suspensions. “NTTC has a long history and proud tradition of supporting the tank truck industry. Dan Furth and his staff do an outstanding job carrying on the 75 year old tradition. We look forward to a great partnership in supporting NTTC’s advocacy efforts.”
