Carlinville, IL, July 8, 2022 – Karmak Inc., a first-in-class business management solutions provider for companies across North America, held a Fusion User Summit hosted at JX Truck Center’s Indianapolis, IN, location June 20 – June 22. The event brought together over 60 attendees from 9 Peterbilt and Kenworth dealers from as far away as Edmonton, AB, and Seattle, WA.
