REDFORD, Mich. — A pair of Freightliner companies are set to host an EPA seminar series to educate attendees on the government’s new emission standards and features for the 2007 model year.
Both Sterling Trucks and Western Star will be holding seminars at various nationwide locations, with some virtual seminars available via WebEx.
The series is being presented in conjunction with Detroit Diesel and is geared towards body builders, end users and Sterling and Western Star dealers.
“The EPA 2007 standards have resulted in modifications to the trucks and components with which we are all familiar,” said Ann Demitruk, director of marketing for Western Star Trucks. “We developed this brand-specific seminar series to ensure that everyone who drives or works with Western Star trucks is fully informed of the upcoming changes.”
Topics covered will include medium- and heavy-duty truck design updates, components affected by the EPA 2007 requirements, regeneration and cleaning strategies for diesel particulate filters (DPF), and chassis features as they relate to heavy-duty on-highway and vocational trucks.
“As ‘vocational experts,’ we pride ourselves on being the work truck authority for EPA 2007,” noted Demitruk. “After our first EPA 2007 seminar received exceptional attendance and feedback at the NTEA Work Truck Show earlier this year, we’re looking forward to its continued success.”
