The Local 440 Plumbers, Steamfitters, & HVAC Service Technicians 53 foot trailer wrap is attention grabbing. The small image on this blog post doesn’t do it justice. It’s something to see. And, at least for me, it was an education. It’s a trailer graphic that works.
I was caught up in the background of waving flags, both USA and Indiana. The fade from dark to light highlights multiple messages, along with, “Building Indianapolis with a certified, licensed drug and alcohol-free work force.”
However, I wasn’t aware of all the associations represented on the wrap. It was time to do some research. What I found was a lesson in professionalism, service, and giving back to the community. To learn more about the associations supported by Local 440 and represented on the trailer wrap, here are their words.
