Wabash introduced of Wabash Acutherm, a new portfolio of solutions designed for intelligent thermal management.

Wabash Acutherm thermal solutions provide efficiency and management for both hot and cold applications. With its thermal capability and structural integrity, temperature states can be maintained regardless of application or environmental conditions, according to the company.

“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,” said president and CEO Brent Yeagy in the statement. “We’re keeping a close pulse on the evolving needs of our customers for superior thermal solutions that deliver versatility and, ultimately, operational and financial benefits.”

Currently, this 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 expects to add more thermal solutions under the Acutherm sub-brand in the future.

The EcoNex Technology's lighter weight, thermal advantages, and insulative benefits make it a substitutes for thermal products constructed with traditional materials such as steel, aluminum, and wood, company officials said.

Wabash Acutherm’s debut follows the company’s expansion of EcoNex Technology production at its Little Falls, Minnesota, facility earlier this month, which includes a $20 million investment and about 200 new jobs by the end of 2023.

Headquartered in Lafayette, Indiana, Wabash designs and manufactures a diverse range of products, including: dry freight and refrigerated trailers, platform trailers, tank trailers, dry and refrigerated truck bodies, structural composite panels and products, trailer aerodynamic solutions, and specialty food grade processing equipment.
