RealTruck Sales Team Finds Success Through Training at SEMA Garage

RealTruck Inc.--the premier manufacturer of aftermarket truckRealTruck parts and accessories--has officially rebranded all areas of its business following a training session at the SEMA Garage in Detroit. 

RealTruck sent its sales team to a three-day cross-training event at the SEMA Garage to ensure its team members are equipped to assist its customers. Participants received classroom instruction on more than 300 of RealTruck's vast product offerings and hands-on training for the installation of several truck bed covers, including the upcoming Retrax EQ, AMP PowerSteps, BackRack headache racks, AVS LightShield Pro and more straight from the state-of-the-art facility. 

"SEMA Garage offers us a unique opportunity to train a large group of people in a comfortable, well-equipped facility. Having a garage setting that will accommodate a lot of trucks and people to experience 'hands-on' installations is an important and welcome resource," said Ryan Herman, executive vice president of sales at RealTruck.  

The SEMA research and validation facility is 45,000 sq. ft., giving 7,000 SEMA-member businesses access to 3D scanning, 3D printing, ADAS testing, vehicle measuring sessions, fully equipped bays, and emissions testing and certification. 


"There really isn't a facility that can accommodate our needs as well as SEMA Garage. We brought in our entire outside sales force from around the country, and this experience has been a terrific way to teach, share and work together," said Herman. 

RealTruck announced its rebrand from Truck Hero last July and, since then, has been working with its various departments and facilities to roll out a new brand identity and sales team. In addition, the company has transitioned its manufacturing websites and dealer locator to, making it easier for millions of do-it-for-me truck owners to find dealers and local resources for professional installation.
