The journey to go from PICKUP TUCK, as a product concept, to design, engineering and production, has been filled with many challenges for TSP. But thanks to buy-in from a team of committed early supporters, the PICKUP TUCK journey is at the finish line. Early validation for TSP and PICKUP TUCK was received when the PICKUP TUCK product concept was presented to Automation Ally. Automation Ally is a business incubator funded with grants from Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) and a variety of other sources.
