Wabash National Corporation has announced that it has recently received orders exceeding $100 million.
``We are beginning to receive indications from our core customer group that their 2002 requirements will exceed their orders placed in 2001,” said Richard E. Dessimoz, acting chief executive officer for Wabash National. “While we do not anticipate industry fundamentals to dramatically improve in the short term, a number of our key customers have performed relatively well during these difficult economic times, which appears to be driving their demand for new trailers.''
The announcement did not name the customers for whom Wabash will be building the trailers, nor did it detail the number or types of trailers involved.
Wabash National Corporation designs, manufactures, and markets standard and customized truck trailers under the Wabash and Fruehauf brands.
