Christian started to work on diesel engines with his father, Eddy, who founded Diesel Spec in 1987. But when the first electronic engines came out, it brought him to completely changed the vocation of the company. Visionary, he saw in the new technologies a great business opportunity, but also a solution to help truckers getting more performance and better fuel milleage of these electronic engines. Today, Christian and his team have brought Diesel Spec to be the North-American leader in diesel engine tuning. Man of heart, Christian is also at the center of Diesel Spec family.
