Mercer Heads to Reno, NV for the Amercian Truck Historical Society Show
Incorporated in 1971, the American Truck Historical Society was formed to preserve the history of trucks, the trucking industry, and its pioneers. Originally headquartered in Dearborn Heights, Michigan, ATHS was relocated to Birmingham, Alabama in 1977, and Mrs. Zoe James was hired to oversee the library, archives, and membership. Today, the Zoe James Memorial Library boasts a collection of more than 50,000 photographs, 35,000 pieces of sales literature, 45,000 books and periodicals, along with a vast collection of scale models and trucking memorabilia.
An annual convention has been held each year since 1972, with a public antique truck show added in 1980. This show has grown from humble beginnings to more than 1,000 trucks and trailers of every make, shape, and size. People come from around the world to take part in the ATHS National Convention & Truck Show, the official kick-off event of the summer season. And this year, Mercer was in attendance with the rest of the planet.
We are thrilled to share with you the amazing experience that Anthony Starks and Dale Kielhorn had at the truck show last month!
They got to see some of the most impressive and innovative, but also vintage and classic, trucks in the industry!
Anthony and Dale were blown away by the variety and quality of the trucks on display, from old-school heavy-duty haulers to sleek and modern semis. They especially enjoyed the interactivity of it all, where they could learn more about the technology and engineering behind the trucks.
We are so happy that the pair had such a great time at the truck show, and we are proud to have them represent us on the road. We believe that investing in our employees’ evolution and development is essential for our success.
We appreciate anybody who was able to drop by and see them at the show. If you’re ever in Reno during the show, stop in and learn about the history and the evolution of the industry.
