Stemco, the Longview, Texas-based EnPro Industries company and a leading manufacturer of heavy-duty components and solutions for the commercial vehicle market, recently appointed Donnie Wells to the position of vice president and general manager of Stemco Suspension Products.
In his new role, Wells will lead the company’s suspension products business, which includes the Stemco Kaiser, Stemco Gaff, Stemco Equipment, as well as the newly acquired Goodyear Air Springs product families.
“The integration of Goodyear Air Springs has added a new dimension of product offerings to Stemco’s suspension products,” said Todd Anderson, president of Stemco. “Donnie’s strong track record of industry experience and his leadership will help us continue that integration as we work to further strengthen Stemco’s market-leading position in the commercial trucking industry.”
Wells, who assumes his new role effective immediately, comes to Stemco from Compressor Products International (CPI), another member of the EnPro family. He began his career as a design engineer at Dana Corp. and initially joined Stemco in 1998 before joining CPI in 2010.
Wells replaces Jon Cocco, who joined the Stemco family from Veyance Technologies during the company’s acquisition of Goodyear Air Springs in July 2015.
