July 6, 2012 – Talbert Manufacturing,
a leader in the engineering and manufacturing of heavy-haul,
specialized and custom-built trailers, has appointed industry veteran
Gerald (Jerry) Rothwell director of business development. This position
is designed to create and expand markets for the Talbert trailer lines
throughout North America.

“It is a great opportunity to work with Talbert Manufacturing. Talbert’s
extensive trailer lines and custom-built units allow our sales team to
develop the most exacting, versatile, and cost-efficient transport
solutions for dealers and customers in a wider array of markets,” says
Rothwell.

development experience to Talbert, having served from 1999 to 2012 as regional vice-president, director of heavy haul business development and director of dealer sales for

United States Navy and was the youngest person to graduate from air control school, which prepared him to attain a specialization in anti-submarine air control. Following six years of Naval service,
Rothwell entered the transportation industry as a rental truck manager.
This led to his successful tenure as sales manager for Dayton,
Ohio-based MPH Equipment Company, a leading distributor for Landoll
Trailer
in the late 1990s.

“We are proud to welcome Jerry Rothwell to the Talbert team. He is a
proven leader in gaining market share and nurturing strong personal
relationships with customers and dealers,” says Greg D. Smith, vice-president of sales and marketing. “He brings a superior knowledge of the U.S. and Canadian heavy haul
markets, and is able to forge solid long-term solutions for
transportation companies and strategic industry partners.”
