The Walther’s have been involved in the manufacture of wheel end and brake equipment for the heavy truck and trailer industry for almost 100 years. When George Walther, Sr. cast the first steel wheels for trucks, steel was a dramatic improvement over the existing iron and wood wheels.
Over the years, he, his children, and their children have innovated wheel designs, brake drum designs, hub designs and have initiated hundreds of wheel-end related patents. At Walther EMC, the goal is to produce the highest value products for our customers. With hundreds of man years of experience in the manufacturing of heavy truck and trailer wheel-end and brake components, Walther EMC understands the technologies available. With clean sheets of paper, we set the criteria. We evaluate and select manufacturing processes that optimize the product's function and cost competitiveness. The outcome is the best value product available. The true magic in manufacturing is selecting the best technologies for efficient production of the product. By selecting manufacturing processes that are consistent with product design parameters, we enhance product features and efficiently produce the product. Most importantly, product quality is assured. At Walther EMC, application of technology simply means better products at lower costs.
