Wabash National(R) Trailers Soon Available In Australia

LAFAYETTE, Ind., March 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wabash National Corporation (NYSE:WNC), a diversified industrial manufacturer and North America's leading producer of semi-trailers and liquid transportation systems, today announced an agreement with Australian-based Mezz Trailers to bring Wabash National®, Transcraft® and Benson® brand trailers to the Australian market.

"The relationship with Mezz Trailers is another step in executing Wabash National Corporation's strategic plan as we expand into new markets," explained Dick Giromini, president and chief executive officer of Wabash National Corporation.

"Although manufacturing a product for export can be challenging, our manufacturing operations are capable of building to a diverse set of customer needs," added Brent Yeagy, group president of Commercial Trailer Products at Wabash National. "We're pleased to offer new trailer options designed for the harsh conditions Australian fleets face in their daily operations."

Wabash National products that will soon be available to the Australian market through Mezz Trailers include:

  • Wabash National DuraPlate® dry vans
  • Wabash National ArcticLite® refrigerated vans
  • Transcraft® steel and hybrid flatbed and drop deck trailers
  • Benson® aluminum flatbed and drop deck trailers

"Our innovation leadership in the North American transportation industry has been recognized with nearly 100 patents in the United States and globally, and our solutions continue to shape the way trailers are built today," said Robert Lane, director of product and business development of Commercial Trailer Products at Wabash National. "We believe our success in Australia will largely be attributed to the fact that both Mezz Trailers and Wabash National are focused on innovation, superior product performance and a commitment to customer satisfaction."

The rugged conditions and long hauls of 2,000 to 3,000 miles in Australia can prove harsh for many international brands of trailers. Wabash National uses steel grades that exceed Australian standards, which will provide a competitive advantage in the market place. In addition, Mezz Trailers has ensured that components on the Wabash National trailers meet Australian regulations and are available locally, along with warranty support.
