JASPER, Ala. — Fontaine PartSource, the new aftermarket parts unit of Fontaine Trailer, has been formed with a focus on serving Fontaine’s Key Dealer and Key Fleet customers with an initial strategy to supply 100% original equipment parts.
The business currently operating out of Fontaine’s Haleyville, Ala. offices has moved into a new 15,000 sq.-ft. facility located in Jasper, Ala.
“Our dealers have indicated a strong desire for Fontaine to take on this effort. We enjoy an excellent business relationship with them that we intend to expand and strengthen through servicing their aftermarket parts needs,” explained Glenn Chambers, president and CEO of Fontaine. “Our 80/20 principled business model led us to segment the parts business so that we can give our key customers the dedicated effort they deserve. To assure the success of this business and of our Dealer and Fleet customers we have added two industry veterans in leadership roles: Ed Wentz and David Lee.”
Wentz has joined Fontaine Trailer as president of Fontaine PartSource. Wentz brings 34 years of experience with Marmon Highway Technologies companies. Prior to joining Fontaine Trailer he was president of Webb Wheel Products – OEM Truck. He also has 21 years in senior management roles with Fontaine Truck Equipment, Fontaine Modification, Fontaine International, Fleetline and Webb Wheel.
Lee is director of operations for Fontaine PartSource. Lee has more than 12 years experience in aftermarket parts at Heil Environmental Industries; serving there as customer service manager along with management roles in operations and purchasing.
