Wabash National Corp. signed a new five-year agreement with Aurora Parts & Accessories LLC to be the exclusive supplier of all aftermarket parts for the company’s dry van, refrigerated van and platform trailers sold under the brand names Wabash National, Transcraft and Benson.
“After careful consideration and a comprehensive evaluation of all options available, Wabash National selected Aurora as providing the best value to Wabash, Transcraft and Benson customers,” the company said in a statement.
With the new agreement, Wabash National and Aurora will collaborate in the day-to-day and strategic management of providing aftermarket parts to Wabash National, Transcraft and Benson dealers and customers.
“We have a responsibility to provide all of our customers from large national fleets to small owner-operators, the best value and service,” said Brent Yeagy, group president of commercial trailer products at Wabash National. “After working with Aurora Parts for more than 10 years, we are confident the company’s best-in-class parts availability, technology and retail marketing will meet the high standards that our dealers and customers have come to expect.”
Aurora Parts operates from a 300,000-sq.-ft. distribution center as a supplier of semi-trailer body parts, truck body and container/chassis parts to a network of independently owned trailer dealerships.
“We are excited to continue our relationship with Wabash as their exclusive provider of aftermarket parts,” said Mike Conley, vice president of sales at Aurora. “Wabash and Aurora share a long legacy of leadership through innovation. This common culture supports a mutual commitment to premium quality products and service. We look forward to many joint initiatives to further enhance the overall customer experience.”
