ConMet unveils new and improved web tools
For immediate release: August 11, 2014
Vancouver, WA –Consolidated Metco (ConMet) launched a new online catalog this week, which
follows the release of ConMet Hub Training 2.0 earlier this spring.
The all new online catalog features more than 60 ConMet hubs, including hub/cup/stud, PreSet,
and PreSet Plus assemblies for both tractors and trailers; more than a dozen varieties of CastLite,
TruTurn, and standard cast brake drums; and ConMet Premium Seals, Bearings, and spindle nuts.
The new site is a treasure trove of crossover information for wheel-end products from many
heavy duty truck manufacturers. A user-friendly search function allows store.conmet.com visitors
to look up part numbers, no matter who makes them, and provides a ConMet equivalent. A
locator tool allows visitors to find their nearest dealer or distributor to purchase the part in person
if they wish.
This launch follows closely after the release of ConMet Hub Training 2.0. The second generation
of this training includes more subject matter on PreSet Plus hub assemblies, and greater detail on
hubs and other ConMet wheel-end products.
Unlike the previous training module, Hub Training 2.0 can be viewed on a mobile device and
does not require Flash software. And trainees can jump from chapter to chapter, rather than
having to proceed linearly. After successfully completing the training, participants will still be
able to print a ConMet Training Certificate.
The training has typically been popular with students at technical colleges and professional
technicians who want to better understand ConMet’s innovative hub technology. The addition of
material on PreSet Plus assemblies will become more important as more OEMs make PreSet Plus
hubs standard on their class 8 vehicles.
“As more countermen, owner/operators, and maintenance managers use the web and mobile
devices to find information and training on heavy duty products, ConMet is meeting their needs,”
says Denise Reeves, VP of Marketing at ConMet. “By presenting this information in such a user
friendly format, we intend to drive sales of our products through our dealer and distributor
In the next several months, ConMet will work on SEO improvements as well as making every
page of www.conmet.com optimized for mobile platforms. ConMet Hub Training 2.0 can be
found at www.conmet.com/training.
