Jeff and Hetti Endeman
Jeff is the heart, soul, and face of Dufferin Diesel Works. He grew up in Orangeville, Ontario, the youngest of five children. Jeff began part-time work already at the age of 12. After completing high school and working in the truck body fabrication industry, Jeff began an apprenticeship. In 1999, he married his wife Hetti and earned his 310T Truck and Coach Technician Certificate of Qualification.
Hetti grew up on a dairy farm near Hillsburgh, one of seven children. She has a background in business administration and works behind the scenes.
In 2009, after Jeff had gained many years of dealership experience, they started Dufferin Diesel Works as a part-time venture. Since then, the business has grown and now operates full-time as a truck service and repair facility in Orangeville.
Jeff has worked countless hours and fixed many trucks. He spends most of his time on the phone with customers and suppliers these days, but will still turn wrenches if the job has to go!
Hetti continues to be active part-time in the administration of the business. Together they operate Dufferin Diesel Works and enjoy spending time with their six children.
