Effective January 1, 2015, Webb Wheel OEM established an independent business focusing exclusively on the needs of the specialty truck and vocational markets.
The new Specialty Truck Business Unit (STBU) was launched with TS16949:2009 quality certification in place as well as having pre-established partnerships with industry-leading truck manufacturers. STBU will continue operations from its current facility in Ferdinand IN. It will take advantage of Webb engineering to introduce additional quality rotor, hub, and drum products designed for the needs of the specialty and vocational equipment operators and OEMs.
This focused business unit, with dedicated sales and service support along with resources available as a business of Marmon Highway Technologies, will result in solutions-oriented wheel end products for specific applications.
STBU will be led by Adam Wiechmann, who has been with Webb since 2008. He previously worked in research and development in Cullman AL before moving to Tell City IN when he joined the Webb Wheel OEM team managing the engineering and quality groups. Most recently, he served as director of engineering and quality for that company.
Wiechmann will be joined at STBU by Jim Rosema (national sales and marketing), Brant Gayer (manager of operations and purchasing), and Jenna Mitchell (financial controller), all of whom previously held key roles within Webb Wheel OEM.
