The Transit Business Unit of Webb Wheel Products has been renamed Webb Severe Duty. The company said the name change reflects the divisio’ns expanded platform and product offering to a wider market.
While Webb Severe Duty will still service the transit/coach industry, the division will also venture into new markets, including refuse, fire, construction, school bus and military, Webb said.
“Today, Webb supplies the highest quality brake drums, rotors, friction and components to the Transit industry through a network of world-class distributors,” said Randy McGuire, Webb Severe Duty president, in a letter sent to the company’s customers.
“Utilizing the knowledge that we have gained through our focus on the Transit and Coach markets,” he added, “we will provide the same high quality products to similar, severe duty markets.”
