Wabash installed the machine with MVP and began their process in commercialization. Wabash had each of the materials quoted and negotiations with CAG and the technology companies went smoothly and when everyone was clear on their costs Wabash pulled the trigger for a cutting edge, innovative new trailer.
Wabash is now working on future projects with the team and collaborating with new technology partners for products of the future. CAG is helping them Connect, Collaborate and Commercialize these opportunities.
The project with Wabash was an unparalleled success. CAG was able to help Wabash double their targeted thermal efficiency and reduce the weight by %20+. The real genius of this project was the ability to scale this to a cost neutral build out. Concept to commercialization was accomplished in 3 years and the composite trailer reached the required 24,000 lbs. fork lift truck rating. This product is now commercially available at www.wabashnational.com
