Chris Dietemann has been named president of Quality Trailer Products. Dietemann replaces Jim Painter, who was recently named president of Polar Tank Trailer.
Both companies are divisions of Polar Corp. Quality supplies original components and aftermarket parts for light-duty and heavy-duty trailers.
Dietemann had been general manager of the company’s Rockwell American leaf spring manufacturing business since December 2010. Prior to that, he held senior management positions with GFRC Gladding Systems and Cartucho Holdings.
“Chris has been responsible for one our key product lines in Rockwell American and has done an excellent job,” said Ted Fick, president & CEO of Polar Corporation. “He’s going to be a great leader for Quality Trailer Products and a valuable member of our executive team at Polar.”
Quality Trailer Products has four assembly plants and 19 service centers, supplying fenders, brakes, axles, wheels, lights, and other trailer products under the Rockwell American and Century Wheel & Rim brands.
