Tyler Robertson is the Founder and CEO of Diesel Laptops, which provides commercial truck efficiency solutions for truck repair facilities. Prior to founding Diesel Laptops, Tyler worked at commercial truck dealerships his entire career and throughout those years, he saw commercial trucks become more and more complex, and more difficult to diagnose - which is exactly the problem that Tyler decided to fix. Diesel Laptops started small by selling diagnostic tools on eBay and working out of Tyler’s garage. Today, Diesel Laptops has grown to over $65 million per year in revenue with 200 employees doing it the hard way - without raising any outside capital. In response to customer needs, Diesel Laptops now offers repair instructions, parts, training, and laptops.
Founded in 2015, Diesel Laptops originally set out to help clients with their diagnostic tool needs. As trucks and emission technology became more advanced, a demand was placed in the market for diagnostic tools to meet those needs. As the years went on, we found that customers needed more. Diesel Laptops has now expanded into 4 distinct divisions. 1.) Diesel Repair is a web and mobile based platform that puts repair information into the hands of the diesel technicians. Diesel Repair contains information on commercial truck diagnostic fault codes, wiring diagrams, component locators, labor time guides, recalls, technical service bulletins (TSBs), remove & replace instructions, and much more. 2.) Diesel Parts enables users a free platform where they can look up their own parts by exploded views, by cross reference, by measurements, or by application. 3.) Diesel Training is the division of the company that provides continuing education for diesel technicians. This includes in-classroom experiences, online learning, and field training where we visit your location. 4.) Diesel Laptops that provide diagnostic tools to customers. Every customer is unique, and Diesel Laptops represent the best brands on the planet. Diesel Laptops surround those tools, with our world class services and support. This ensures customers are fitted with the appropriate tools, while also giving them access to the data and information they need to truly be efficient at truck and equipment repair.
