Wabash National Introduces the DuraPlate(R) Foldable Mobile

Wabash National Introduces the DuraPlate(R) Foldable Mobile Shelter
at Emergency Management Expo 
Wabash Composites Expands Product Portfolio to Reach New Markets 
LAFAYETTE, IN -- (Marketwire) -- 10/29/12 --  Wabash Composites, a
business unit of Wabash National Corporation (NYSE: WNC), today
introduced the DuraPlate Foldable Mobile Shelter at the Emergency
Management and Homeland Security Expo in Orlando, Fla. A
multi-purpose insulated solution for everything from mobile offices
to temporary living quarters, this patent-pending product is easily
transported and can be assembled on-site in about 15 minutes. Modular
and completely configurable, the mobile shelter can be customized for
temporary offices, disaster relief, humanitarian aid and military
field operations.  
"Among the multiple uses for this product, access to a safe, clean,
comfortable shelter following a natural disaster such as a flood,
hurricane, tornado or earthquake is typically a significant need
that's not often readily available," said Dick Giromini, president
and chief executive officer, Wabash National Corporation. "This
product now fills that void." 
"Building on the success of our DuraPlate portable storage container
product line, we saw an opportunity to build a shelter product that
could be quickly and easily shipped anywhere in the world," said
Jamie Scarcelli, vice president and general manager, Wabash
Composites. "By leveraging the strength of the DuraPlate composite
panel we can bring a more durable, flexible solution to the mobile
shelter market." 
Available in a 16-foot-by-8-foot configuration, Wabash Composites
mobile shelters fold flat to a 16-inch height and can be stacked 6
units high, which allows for 18 units to be transported via a flatbed
trailer. American-made in Lafayette, Ind., shelters are constructed
of the proprietary DuraPlate(R) composite panel which has over 16
years of proven performance in the semi-trailer, truck body and
portable storage industries.
