Assembling all the components for a truck-mounted crane or a highway plow truck requires coordination among as many as 40 different manufacturers to create a vehicle that efficiently blends utility with safety. It’s a complicated process that demands strong organization and communication.

Aspen Equipment, a leading truck upfitter, borrows from the construction industry and approaches the process with a project manager structure. The project manager is responsible for managing all the vendors and equipment manufacturers, funneling them to a single vision for the final vehicle’s capabilities. “That’s in essence what we do,” Vice President of Sales and Marketing Todd Foster says. “We’re designing and constructing a building, but instead it’s a truck.”
