The Aftermarket Business of Webb Wheel Products has hired Ed Smith as fleet sales manager, where he will have direct contact with fleets to help the company meet the needs of trucking operators for quality wheel end components. “Webb Wheel knows the value of hearing directly from fleet operators about their wheel end requirements both when writing specifications for new vehicles and when they need replacement parts,” says Duane Ricketts, president of Webb Aftermarket. “Ed brings that experience with him to Webb.”
Smith has represented companies in the heavy truck industry for more than 25 years, most recently as national accounts manager for Champion Laboratories/Luber-Finer Filters, where he also spent five years as their national fleet sales manager. Prior to joining Champion Laboratories/Luber-Finer Filters, he held managerial positions with Fyda Freightliner in Canonsburg, Pa., and Truck City Parts in Clarksburg, W.Va.
