Christian Hernandez – Fabricator

Christian's talent level is hard to find. We are very fortunate to have someone with the consistency and tenacity to produce quality craftmanship day in and day out at D1 Chassis. He joined us in 2021 and has been a vital part in the uptick in chassis production for us since!

Dillon joined the Driven team in 2015 when our Sales Manager Gary Olson was away from work fighting medical problems. Dillon filled the role of some very big shoes and has proved his commitment to the Driven brand.
