Fontaine Trailer Co. now is operating an aftermarket parts unit called Fontaine PartSource. The business formerly operating out of Fontaine’s Haleyville, Ala., offices has moved into a new 15,000-square-foot facility in Jasper, Ala. The unit will focus on serving Fontaine’s key dealer and fleet customers, with an initial plan to supply 100 percent original equipment parts.

Ed Wentz, former president of Webb Wheel Products, has been named president of the new aftermarket parts unit. Wentz has 21 years of senior management experience in roles with Fontaine, Fleetline and Webb Wheel.

David Lee has been named PartSource director of operations. Lee has 12 years of experience in aftermarket parts at Heil Environmental Industries, where he served as customer service manager.
