Larry Berlin, who has led the Mack Boring & Parts Co.’s training and educational programs for decades, is retiring today.

“For 45 years we have had the honor of Larry as the leader in our training and educational programs, initially as a founder of Engine City Technical Institute and most recently as director of training services division at Mack Boring & Parts Company, always delivering excellence to countless students and the diesel engine industry,” the company said in a statement.

The leaders of the New Jersey-based family business, Patrick, Steve and Ned McGovern, cited Berlin’s “passion for teaching” and “his love for our industry.”

Berlin was recruited in 1969 by Ed “Mack” McGovern Jr.
