Hayes Lemmerz International Inc is the recipient of Wabash National Corp's 2011 Supply Chain Leadership and Performance Pinnacle Supplier Award.

One of 16 supplier recognition awards presented by Wabash National at its annual supplier conference, the award comes less than a year after Hayes Lemmerz began supplying powdercoated, lightweight steel wheels as standard equipment for Wabash National's trailers.

Hayes Lemmerz says it serves nearly all major truck and trailer OEMs around the world. Manufacturing facilities in North America, South America, Europe, and Asia produce a wide range of wheel diameters.
