Salem, IL – (May 7, 2018) – Jarco, an EnTrans International, LLC, brand, recently received a Plant Safety Award from the Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association (TTMA) for its Salem, IL, plant. The award was presented to Todd Finney, Senior Vice President of Operations at EnTrans International, LLC, at TTMA’s 76th annual convention in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico, on April 19.
The TTMA awards are given annually based on plant safety data from TTMA member companies that provide their annual OSHA 300A Summary Form. It is the same data used by the National Safety Council and Bureau of Labor Statistics. The awards are given in two categories: Tank and General Trailer Manufacturers. Each category is divided into three classes determined by plant size.
Jarco received the TTMA Plant Safety Award for the Most Improved in the Tank Trailer Division for 2017. The 50,000 square foot, state-of-the-art Salem manufacturing facility was opened in 2015. Barrels used in the production of Jarco tank trucks are sourced through EnTrans International’s Juarez plant, also a TTMA award recipient. In addition to Juarez, the Salem facility is an ASME U certificate holder and a National Board R certificate holder.
