Building on Success

In 1985, a small group of innovators and entrepreneurs led by Donald J. “Jerry” Ehrlich began manufacturing trailers in Lafayette, Indiana. Wabash National Corporation (NYSE: WNC) was born. We quickly became the leading American manufacturer of semi-trailers by introducing new technologies such as the DuraPlate® composite panel as well as design innovations that allow the largest fleets across the country to operate more successfully.

Today, Wabash National Corporation is a diversified industrial manufacturing business with an expanding product portfolio, a growing presence in a number of industries and a commitment to continuous improvement. 

Our products are widely recognized and highly regarded, often holding the number-one position in market share across their respective categories. Our brands include: Wabash National®, Transcraft®, Benson® , DuraPlate®, Walker®, Brenner®, Garsite™, Progress Tank™, Bulk Tank International™, and Extract Technology®.

We are strongly positioned for growth and motivated by the same spirit of innovation and leadership that drove our early success.
