Martinez, CA—Thirty years ago Chuck Uischner started California Diesel out of a single bay in Arnold Industrial Park. Today, his daughter, Jill Collaro, is the President and his son, Don Uischner, is Vice President. The company has since grown to become “CD & Power” – employing 44 people, operating 35 trucks, and occupying a 20,000 sq ft space in Martinez. Moreover, it is Northern California’s largest independent generator service company, maintaining the top brands in the diesel power industry for customers including major telecommunications companies, municipalities, retail chains, hospitals and truck fleet operators down to individuals with recreational vehicles.
Collaro and Uischner believe that the company’s three decades of success can be largely attributed to the dedication of the employees and a corporate culture that is focused on collaboration. “We continue to have regular company-wide meetings, something my father started,” says Collaro, “where we encourage all of our employees to contribute their ideas and express areas where they believe we can improve.”
