Wabash recognized 42 of its top suppliers with the 2023 Wabash Supplier Awards for supply chain excellence.

“Our suppliers are invaluable partners in our journey to deliver breakthrough, cost-effective solutions to our customers," said Richard Mansilla, vice president, global procurement for Wabash. “Their support and collaboration are instrumental in overcoming both near- and long-term supply chain challenges.”

Wabash presents annual awards to top suppliers for excellence in supply chain performance, considering criteria such as innovation, quality, delivery, cost, and service. The company’s highest honor is its Pinnacle Award, which recognizes the company’s supplier of the year.

This year’s Pinnacle Award winner is Webb Wheel OEM of Tell City, Indiana, a Marmon/Berkshire Hathaway company that manufactures brake drums, hubs, calipers, and rotors for medium and heavy-duty trucks, trailers, and buses. This marks Webb Wheel’s ninth overall Wabash supplier award and first Pinnacle Award.
