Effective January 1, 2011, Webb Wheel Products Inc will change the name of its Transit Business Unit to Webb Severe Duty. The change reflects the company's plans to expand its platform and product offering to serve a wider market. Webb Severe Duty will continue to serve the Transit/Coach industry but will also now focus on new markets including refuse, fire, construction, school bus, and military.
Webb Severe Duty will continue new product innovation in its core product lines of brake drums, rotors, and friction that will emphasize developments around complete brake systems. These complete systems will be engineered and matched components such as drums and friction material, rotors, and disc pads as well as other severe-duty components.
