Wabash National Corporation, a producer of semi-trailer and liquid transportation systems, has formed a new agreement with EconCore NV to distribute EconCore’s honeycomb core production technology in North America. Wabash National has the exclusive rights to manufacture and sell certain honeycomb sandwich material configurations in the containment and transportation industries in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

The honeycomb core technology is already used in numerous industries, including aerospace, automotive, marine, and wind and solar energy.

‘We’re exploring a number of applications where we can innovate and use this honeycomb core technology in existing products to significantly reduce weight, thus providing our customers a superior value proposition,’ said Brian Bauman, vice president and general manager of Wabash Composites. ‘In addition, this technology allows us to continue to focus on our growth and diversification efforts as we explore new end markets and products.’
