Webb Wheel OEM creates specialty truck business unit

Jan. 13, 2015

Webb Wheel OEM has created an independent business unit focused on the specialty truck and vocational markets. The new Specialty Truck Business Unit (STBU) will operate out of its current facility located in Ferdinand, IN. 

STBU will take advantage of Webb excellence in innovative engineering to introduce additional rotor, hub and drum products designed for the specific needs of the specialty and vocational equipment operators and OEMs, said the company.

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 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. 

Wiechmann will be joined at STBU by Jim Rosema (national sales and marketing), Brant Gayer (manager of operations & purchasing), and Jenna Mitchell (financial controller), all of whom previously held key roles within Webb Wheel OEM.
