Maxion Wheels announced it was chosen again by Wabash National Corporation as the standard position steel wheel supplier for its full line of commercial trailer products, including dry and refrigerated van trailers, platform trailers and tank trailers. This is the third consecutive long-term agreement Wabash has awarded to Maxion Wheels, the company noted.

"Maxion Wheels has earned its position as our preferred steel wheel supplier largely due to its commitment to manufacturing quality, delivery, service and competitiveness," said Nick Adler, vice president of global strategic sourcing, Wabash National. "Wabash recently moved into the top 25 of IndustryWeek magazine's '50 Best U.S. Manufacturers' ranking, and it's the collaborative partnerships we have with suppliers like Maxion Wheels that help us perform at our best for our customers. This new agreement not only recognizes the value we place in Maxion Wheels' product innovation, including its new five-year powder coating finish warranty against corrosion, but also in the trust we have that Maxion will continue to provide us and our fleet customers with the exceptional service that has earned them outstanding supplier awards for five consecutive years, including our top-tier Pinnacle Supplier Award."

"Maxion Wheels and our global team of 10,000 employees are honored by Wabash National's confidence in our product technology and customer service," said Pieter Klinkers, CEO of Maxion Wheels. "We greatly value the trust they have bestowed in us for the last six years, and are committed to keeping that trust every day."
