MIKE JEFFRESS
“This industry is going to lose 50% of our service techs in the next 10 years. Training is the only way we can meet this challenge.”

As cofounder of SuperTech, North America’s premier service tech competition and training event, it should come as no surprise that Mike Jeffress is passionate about the value of education. The Arkansas native views rigorous training as the only way the industry can combat the dwindling number of service technicians in North America. And the best way for Maverick to compete as it grows into one of the largest haulers of glass and steel in the US. It’s why the company recently spent $4 million to construct a state-of-the-art training facility, and why its technicians spend nearly 200 hours a year in the classroom.

WELCOME TO MAVERICK U

THE LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS HEADQUARTERS IS A “STATE OF THE ART” CAMPUS FOR PROFESSIONALS IN THE TRANSPORTATION INDUSTRY.

TRAINING CENTER

THE CORNERSTONE OF MAVERICK’S COMMITMENT TO EMPLOYEE EDUCATION, THIS $4 MILLION TRAINING CENTER WAS FINISHED IN 2014. MADE FROM THE PRODUCTS THEY HAUL (STEEL, GLASS, LUMBER), IT INCLUDES SEVEN STATE-OF-THE-ART TRAINING BAYS, PLUS SIX HI-TECH CLASSROOMS WHERE BOTH ONLINE AND INSTRUCTOR-LED TRAINING IS HELD.

MAINTENANCE FACILITY

WITHIN THIS CONTEMPORARY, EIGHT-BAY FACILITY, DOZENS OF TECHS PUT THEIR RIGOROUS TRAINING TO THE TEST EVERY DAY. HEADED UP BY A MAINTENANCE COORDINATOR, EACH TECH TEAM IS RESPONSIBLE FOR UP TO 300 TRUCKS. AND EVERY TRUCK COMES THROUGH FOR PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE FOUR TIMES A YEAR.

ON-SITE HOTEL

AT THE TURN OF THE MILLENNIUM, MAVERICK RECOGNIZED THE LOOMING SHORTAGE OF DRIVERS AND TECHNICIANS AND BEGAN INVESTING IN WAYS TO KEEP THEM AROUND. THAT INVESTMENT INCLUDES A MODERN, 24-ROOM HOTEL ON THEIR CORPORATE CAMPUS, WHERE TRAINEES CAN STAY WHILE THEY’RE LEARNING THE ROPES.

CORPORATE OFFICE

IN ONE CORNER OF MAVERICK’S BEAUTIFULLY LANDSCAPED, 80-ACRE CAMPUS SITS THEIR HEADQUARTERS. ENTERED BY WAY OF A BRIDGE OVER A STREAM WITH A WATERFALL, THIS BUILDING IS AS WELCOMING AS IT IS IMPRESSIVE. TO PROTECT CUSTOMER ROUTING INFORMATION AND OTHER ELECTRONIC RECORDS, THE BUILDING ALSO HOUSES AN IT BUNKER BUILT TO WITHSTAND AN F4 TORNADO.

“PEAK FINAL CHARGE DOES OFFER US A BIG ADVANTAGE OVER CONVENTIONAL COOLANTS.”

CORPORATE SERVICE MANAGER, MAVERICK USA, INC.
