Chief Joins National Truck & Heavy Equipment Claims Council

Chief Joins National Truck & Heavy Equipment Claims Council

Chief was elected into the council, which focuses on insurance claims and repairs of heavy-duty vehicles and equipment, as an associate member by majority vote of the membership at its spring meeting.

Chief was recently admitted to the National Truck & Heavy Equipment Claims Council (NTHECC), the industry trade organization dedicated to ethics, efficiency and issues involving the servicing of insurance claims and the subsequent repairs of all forms of heavy-duty vehicles and equipment. Chief was elected into the council as an associate member by majority vote of the membership at its spring meeting.

NTHECC membership is comprised primarily of independent claims adjusters and insurance companies. As one of the few manufacturers of heavy-duty collision repair equipment admitted to the NTHECC, Chief brings a unique perspective to the organization. Recognizing this, the members have asked Chief to make a presentation addressing the latest advancements in collision repair equipment for the heavy-duty truck industry at the council’s next meeting in October.

The NTHECC is highly respected within the industry, in part because becoming a member is not easy. It involves a written letter of reference and consideration for membership from three current members, and a formal presentation to council members regarding the proposed company’s philosophies and qualifications. This is followed by a lengthy vetting process before admission is offered.

“NTHECC membership gives us the opportunity to have conversations with the people who are out there in the repair shops every day, seeing damaged vehicles and how they are being repaired,” said Lee Daugherty, heavy-duty sales manager for Chief. “As an NTHECC member, we are part of the team constantly learning what’s going on in the ‘real world’ of the industry so we can work with heavy-duty collision repair shops, insurance adjusters and insurance companies to enhance productivity and safety.”

Safety is a key stated objective of the NTHECC. The organization works to promote safety in the ownership and use of trucks and heavy equipment and supports studies into the causes of highway accidents and how to reduce them.
