Wabash National Corporation announced that production at its recently acquired operations in Cadiz, KY, is well underway, with production of flatbed trailers having begun on Sept. 2, along with the start-up of dump trailer production this past week.
In late July, Wabash National completed the acquisition of certain assets of Benson International, adding aluminum flatbeds and dumps to the previous Transcraft portfolio of steel and combo flatbed and drop deck offerings.
"It's great to see our newest location in Cadiz, KY, up and running," said Wabash National President and Chief Executive Officer, Dick Giromini. "I'm extremely proud of all associates who worked hard these past few weeks to bring the facility back on line so quickly and effectively. We now offer an expanded portfolio of products to our customers.”
Under the new management, the idled facilities were brought up to production-ready state in just 27 business days. At full production, this facility has the capacity to produce in excess of 3,000 units annually.
