Fontaine Trailer Co., a Marmon Highway Technologies company (MHT), has named Randy McGuire president of the Fontaine Heavy-Haul business unit based in Springville, AL.
"We're delighted to have Randy leading this important business focusing on the needs of heavy-haul customers. He has an industry-wide reputation for taking care of customers, a keen perspective and broad depth of experience," said John Craig, president of Fontaine Trailer Company.
McGuire began his career with MHT at Fontaine Trailer in 1987 as a draftsman and CNC programmer. He completed his mechanical engineering degree at the University of Alabama in Huntsville while working full time at Fontaine, being promoted to engineering manager and starting a family with his wife, Michelle. He was promoted to VP of engineering at Fontaine and in 2005 took on the role of general manager of the Fontaine fabrication shop.
In 2007, McGuire was promoted to president of Webb Wheel Products - Transit Business Unit. He successfully lead Webb Transit to grow to a dominant position in the transit and coach brake drum market. This growth path for Webb Transit continued upward with new niche focused marketing efforts that eventually lead to changing the business unit name from Webb Transit to Webb Severe Duty. In his new role at Fontaine Trailer, McGuire will be responsible for growing the heavy-haul business using 80/20 principles to understand which products and customers are best suited to serve this market.
