WABASH HISTORY: A HERITAGE OF INNOVATION
Beginning in 1985, when a small group of entrepreneurs got together in Lafayette, Indiana, to improve how semi-trailers were designed and built, Wabash National Corporation led the technological breakthroughs that now support the largest fleets in North America.
From DuraPlate composite panels to advancements that make trailers more aerodynamic and fuel-efficient, Wabash National continues to drive innovation in our expanding product portfolio.
Serving a growing field of industries—including commercial transportation, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, biotech and many others—Wabash National businesses work beside customers to solve specific business challenges. Today, our diverse product portfolio offers a wide array of high-performance solutions, ranging from commercial transportation equipment to advanced composite materials.
The same passion for innovation, continuous improvement and customer relationships that drove our early success is still our foundation. No matter what we manufacture, or where we manufacture it, we share a united spirit and culture. Adapted from the Wabash National Website
