This winter has not been kind for drivers locally and across the nation. It isn’t an easy chore to navigate an 18-wheeler on slick roads either.
Although the over the road drivers of Hill-Rom have dealt with difficult driving conditions throughout North America, there have been zero non-preventable accidents this winter.
It is quite an accomplishment considering the fleet of 45 drivers routinely deliver company product in nearly every U.S. state, and travel as far north as British Columbia, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.
“They’ve done a great job this year considering the winter that we’re having,” said John Vogelsang, distribution manager for Hill-Rom in Batesville. “It’s not just here in the region but everywhere.”
“Overall, these guys have done a very very good job considering the conditions we have encountered this winter.”
