Joe Johansson and I have worked together for a number of years. His significant knowledge of heavy vehicles and tremendous work ethic leaves no doubt that his efforts will provide the best solution for the customer. Joe truly is an “optimizer” of heavy vehicle systems.
“One in a million”, “A class act”, “Joe knows his stuff”, “He certainly explained that so well”
These are comments about Joe Johansson that come to mind immediately and still don’t do him justice. Joe can relate vehicle performance predictions in such a way that impresses people from all levels; from Engineering VP’s; demanding Operations Managers, experienced truck drivers, through to the least educated audiences.
He has helped Western Star Trucks beyond any expectations for at least the fourteen years I have known him. During that time Joe represented his company impeccably and was THE major part of the successful partnership between our two companies. Understanding seemingly insurmountable application requirements for heavy trucks may be one talent, but proving his calculations, for example in the cab in a mine field truck, is where Joe excels. Joe delivers quality work which filled a major gap in our Engineering expertise and impressed all customers with whom he worked.
I am honored to recommend Joe for any technical projects and/or consultancy and will gladly answer any questions or give more information.
It has been a great pleasure working with Joe over the years. I first worked with Joe on a thirty tri-axle dump truck deal in 2005. Since then, we built the ultimate heavy-haul truck, being able to run 70 mph empty and move up to 450,000 lbs loaded. Could not have done it with out Joe’s help and guidance. He has truly been one of the great people to work with in the transportation field. He definitely is a true professional and pleasure to work with.
As a District Manager for Daimler Trucks North America, for the past 17 years, I’ve used Joe Johnasson numerous times to ensure we had the correct components to maximize, our power, performance and fuel economy requirements for each and every job. You can feel confident about the process, and the end result.
I have worked with Joe in the heavy truck industry for over 8 years. His knowledge and understanding of drive train components and his ability to put together components that work are beyond incredible. Joe has been a major asset to our organization in helping us spec the correct equipment to get the job done economically without sacrificing power for many of our fleet customers. His wealth of knowledge and experience places him in the forefront of experts in our industry. For as long as I am in this industry, I will continue to seek advice from Joe Johansson.
