Heavy-duty: HDA Truck Pride announces leadership expansion
Fontaine Fifth Wheel received the prestigious Masters of Quality Award from Daimler Trucks of North America (DTNA). The award honors the top component and service suppliers to DTNA’s Freightliner and Western Star brand trucks. Fontaine supplies No-Slack fifth wheels to DTNA. The exclusive No-Slack design automatically self-adjusts the lock to allow for trailer kingpin size variances. The precise No-Slack kingpin fit reduces shock inputs into the frame for a smoother ride, lower maintenance costs and longer component life, the company noted in a press release.
