Webb Wheel splits off new business unit

Updated Jan 12, 2015

Webb Wheel OEM has 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 and pre-established partnerships with industry leading truck manufacturers.

The new business wing will continue operations out if its current facility located in Ferdinand, Ind., taking advantage of Webb engineering to introduce additional quality rotor, hub and drum products designed for the specific needs of the specialty and vocational equipment operators and OEMs.

The new focused business unit having dedicated sales and service support for this unique market along with the resources available as a business of Marmon Highway Technologies will result in significant solutions-oriented wheel end products for these 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, Ala. before moving to Tell City, Ind. when he joined the Webb Wheel OEM team managing the engineering and quality groups.

Most recently he held the position of Director of Engineering and Quality for that company. Prior to joining Webb, Wiechmann held various chassis engineering positions at General Motors with focus in test, product design, and brake development on multiple truck programs.
