This is the 12th year Wabash National’s Tank Trailer business has received a plant safety award from TTMA. The award was presented to President and Chief Executive Officer Brent Yeagy on April 27 at TTMA’s 77th Annual Convention.

Awards are given to tank and trailer manufacturers based on the number of man-hours worked.
