 LAKE MILTON, Ohio - Looking to increase their recruiting foothold on new truck driver training graduates and signing them on with Gypsum Express, Ltd., the Baldwinsville, NY-based company has recently committed to providing TDDS Technical Institute, Lake Milton, OH, with a second updated semi-truck to help further strengthen the school’s truck driver training program.

Recognizing schools like TDDS Tech have limited resources and a need for upgraded vehicles in today’s truck driver education arena, Gypsum Express owner John Wight and his staff continue to show their confidence in and appreciation for the job that TDDS Technical Institute does preparing inexperienced truck driver students for the Trucking Industry and more specifically, for their company.

Rick Rathburn, Jr., CEO/Owner of TDDS Tech, says “Although, other companies have provided semi-trucks and trailers in the past, none have shown this high of a level of commitment to our students. We are truly grateful for their pledge to transportation education excellence.”

“By offering these semi-tractor trailer units to TDDS Technical Institute, Gypsum solidifies delivering the highest quality education possible to TDDS trainees,” says Driver Recruiter, Bob Lingyak. “In turn, TDDS Tech provides us with high-quality job-ready, entry-level truck driving graduates that we come to expect. Plus, it also gives TDDS students the opportunity to learn on the type of trucks they will be driving at Gypsum.”

Proudly, Rathburn states, “This is a great example of what the educational and transportation communities can do together and what a true partnership is all about.”
