Detroit Chassis bids farewell to David (Dave) Taylor after many years of outstanding support of the F5X program Friday, July 9, 2021. Dave came to Detroit Chassis in late 2018 with over 30 years of experience in chassis design and development, program management, and manufacturing after retiring from Ford Motor Company.
Before coming on board with Detroit Chassis, he was the PVT Manager/Resident Engineer/Design Supervisor. Dave started his career as an engineering co-op student at Ford’s Rouge complex and has held various design and manufacturing leadership positions within the Commercial Vehicles and Product Development Departments. He was assigned to Detroit Chassis early in his career as the Ford Vehicle Team Manager in 2000 and then led and launched many of the Ford F-53 chassis programs. Dave also led the design team that launched the all-new F-59 commercial stripped chassis in 2010.
Thank you for all of your heartfelt contributions to the Detroit Chassis team. Dave, we are going to miss you!
