Female Diesel Mechanic Breaking Traditions

Aymee Cunningham has worked as a technician for the Larson group for three years now. She knew she belonged in this industry because she grew up around it. She has had her fair share of successes within the company.

A large construction company brought in a half million-dollar concrete pumper that began to have issues with the check engine light. Technicians from both Peterbilt and Cummins came to the shop to fix the problem, but left scratching their heads and with the issue unresolved. So Aymee took matters into her own hands. “I decided I was going to make my own circuit for it, and run wiring in to see what happens. If maybe the wiring was too small. It was carrying it most the time but not all the time. I fixed it. A year later and they haven’t had a lick of problems with that truck since.”

Peterbilt of Joplin's general manager Roger Bartlett say they couldn't be more proud of Aymee and the work that she's done. “It was an eye opener for everybody when she solved that. It was big deal and she she gained a lot of respect.”
