Wabash Lafayette South Plant
In this video, Brent Yeagy, Wabash President & CEO, provides a look at the new Wabash Lafayette South Plant.
The new facility features advanced manufacturing technology that improves the worker experience while providing a more repeatable process. Production began several months ago, and once the plant is fully ramped, the company will have doubled production at its Lafayette South Plant with the same facility footprint and workforce.
“Today is special because the culmination of this massive project represents what we can achieve at Wabash when we allow ourselves to re-imagine what’s possible in manufacturing,” said Wabash President and Chief Executive Officer Brent Yeagy. “We had 100 or more Wabash team members touch this expansion project over the last two years. I could not be more proud of the way they stuck with the mission to upgrade our dry van manufacturing for both capacity and efficiency, as well as worker safety.”
