Question: What’s it like working with Henry Albert, and what challenges has he brought to Fleet Engineers?
Tom: It’s been a blast working with Henry. He’s always bringing new stuff to the table. He’s got a lot of innovative ideas and it’s fun trying to incorporate some of those into our everyday products.
Question: What are his main objectives?
Tom: Henry’s main goal is to increase his miles per gallon. Everything he does is to increase miles per gallon. The less fuel he has to spend, the more money he’s able to save.
Question: How have you, as an engineer, been able to help him with that?
Tom: The number one way we’re able to help him with that is with our side skirts. Our AeroSaver side skirts are able to help him reduce his fuel usage. We’ve worked hard to design the AeroSaver not only to be fuel efficient, but to be labor efficient as well. Our skirts are easy to install and easy to repair due to some innovative hardware we’ve developed called “Quick Mount” brackets, and “SkirtTrak” rail. Henry’s been really helpful in helping us test and refine these ideas. The other thing is our AeroFlap mud flaps, we’re able to cut down a little bit on fuel with those. Henry has been reminding us that safety is an important factor as well. The diamond shaped pattern of our AeroFlaps air holes help control rain spray, and that makes the road safer for everyone.
