Webb Wheel Severe Duty announces the appointments of Nate Nielsen as director of sales and Jeremy Zills to manager of engineering.

These latest organizational enhancements at Webb Severe Duty are key components in the strategic plans of the business unit to focus on premium value-add brake drum solutions for severe duty applications such as transit bus, motor coach, and refuse trucks, the company says.

Nielsen transferred to Webb Severe Duty from the company’s Aftermarket business unit where he most recently held the position of OES strategic account manager. He joined Webb Wheel in 2010, following a decade of advancements in the commercial vehicle industry at PACCAR, Peterbilt and Federal Mogul.

Zills also transferred to Webb Severe Duty from another Webb Wheel business. Zills joined the company in 2002 as design engineer at its OEM facility in Tell City, Ind. and progressed to senior project engineer II with its state of the art R&D facility in Cullman, Ala.  His new position with Webb Severe Duty will focus on the design and engineering of new products to meet the needs of the transit bus, motor coach and refuse truck market segments, the company says.
