Mike Rowe and Bruce Drake


In 2022, Drake-Scruggs proudly celebrated its 50th year as a member of NTEA.

And we took the chance to celebrate this honor when we attended the 2022 NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis in March. As a special highlight, our president Bruce Drake was given the chance to meet Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs. Known as the “dirtiest man on TV,” Rowe was a keynote speaker at the NTEA Annual Meeting.

Many of our readers know NTEA, the Association for the Work Truck Industry, which represents 2,100 companies that manufacture, distribute, install, sell and repair commercial trucks, truck bodies, truck equipment, trailers and accessories.

NTEA provides members like us with in-depth technical information, education, and member programs and services. They also produce the annual Work Truck Show in Indianapolis each year. The Work Truck Show is the must-attend event for the work truck industry. It is North America’s largest work truck event and the once-a-year chance to see all of the newest industry products.

Wonder who we’ll meet at next year’s show? Join us in 2023!.
