Trailer maker Wabash announced a sub-brand product portfolio called Acutherm — a proprietary system of components, products and solutions that the manufacturer said intuitively maintains desired temperature regardless of application or environmental conditions.
The product line consists of Wabash Acutherm refrigerated van trailers with EcoNex Technology, Acutherm refrigerated freight delivery bodies, Acutherm refrigerated freight delivery bodies with EcoNex Technology, Acutherm sanitary tank trailers and Acutherm refrigerated cargo van inserts. The company reported it expects more thermal solutions to be added.
Acutherm’s debut follows the company’s expansion of EcoNex Technology production at its Little Falls, Minn., facility earlier this month, which included a $20 million investment and more than 200 new jobs by the end of 2023, Wabash noted.
EcoNex, made from environmentally conscious materials, is the company’s next-generation molded structural composite.
“Wabash Acutherm is a testament of our commitment to meeting the demands of the cold chain market, as well as other areas of transportation where temperature control is critical to food safety and consumer health,” Wabash CEO Brent Yeagy said in a release. — Transport Topics
