“We’re thrilled to welcome these companies to the Wil-Ro Distributor Network,” said Joshua J. Coster, President & Owner of Wil-Ro, Inc. “Despite shared industry hurdles, we’re experiencing momentum with Wil-Ro sales up nearly 15 percent this quarter compared to Q1 2022, and June marked the largest volume of truck bodies delivered year-to-date. We are committed to helping our customers thrive in this challenging market.”
Wil-Ro remains optimistic for supply chain and chassis shortages to improve later this year into early 2023.
Innovation is in the air at Wil-Ro in 2022 as the manufacturer Wil-Ro launches its highly anticipated Liberty Flatbed this quarter, combining customer-favorite elements of Wil-Ro’s Utility Flatbed and Skirted Flatbed. Plus, Wil-Ro will be rolling out improved truck body features, including new latches and headboard designs.
Wil-Ro recently won Top Workplaces by the Tennessean for the second consecutive year. Based solely on employee feedback gathered by a third-party surveyor, this award measures 15 culture drivers. Wil-Ro’s unique approach to culture runs deep, and it is in the spirit of each team member. Building off its core values, Wil-Ro has created a new position for Quality Inspection, which will help reduce quality issues on truck bodies.
“The quality inspection position adds a ton of value to Wil-Ro’s product,” said Sean Smith, Team Leader in Product Finishing at Wil-Ro. “Quality in a service or product is not what you put into it—it’s what the customer gets out of it.”
