ConMet Exhibiting at NACV Show 2019
VANCOUVER, WA | October 28th, 2019 — ConMet is excited to be exhibiting at the 2019 North American Commercial Vehicle Show this week in Atlanta, Georgia. With a brand-new booth, ConMet will be in Hall B, booth #5145, showcasing a variety of products including its industry-preferred PreSet Plus® wheel end technology as well as its two product innovations: The PreSet Plus® Electric Hub (eHub™) and the PreSet Plus® Smart Hub (SmartHub™).
“For over fifty years ConMet has focused on developing value-driven solutions that address critical customer needs”, stated John Waters, President. “ConMet has led the evolution of the wheel end since the introduction of PreSet® technology and is continuing to lead by developing solutions that advance the industry. We’re excited to be exhibiting at NACV with this impressive range of wheel end technologies”, continued Mr. Waters.
ConMet’s commitment to advancing commercial vehicle technologies is further evidenced by key organizational changes, namely its appointment of Beto Dantas as Chief Technology and Innovation Officer (CTIO). In this role, Mr. Dantas will continue to oversee marketing as well as spearhead the development of ConMet’s digitalization and electrification business units. Prior to his appointment as CTIO, a newly created position, Mr. Dantas served as Vice President of Marketing, Strategy, and Innovation, a title he had held since joining ConMet in 2014.
“ConMet has a long history of innovating to drive improvements in vehicle performance, safety, and efficiency. I’m looking forward to continuing that legacy by further broadening the scope of ConMet’s offerings in the commercial vehicle industry”, commented Mr. Dantas.
