Wabash National Corp. announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire certain assets of the tank and trailer business of Beall Corp., a Portland, Oregon-based manufacturer of aluminum tank trailers and related equipment, for approximately $15 million in cash. The acquisition is expected to close during the first quarter of 2013.

Beall Corp. began Chapter 11 reorganization proceedings in September of 2012, followed by a bankruptcy-court approved auction of its assets in December. Wabash National was the winning bidder for certain assets of Beall's tank and trailer business, including its Portland, Oregon manufacturing facility, as well as equipment, inventory, certain product designs, intellectual property and other related assets.

The closing of the transaction is subject to the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Oregon entering a final order approving the acquisition by Wabash National pursuant to and in accordance with the definitive agreement.
