Springdale-based NanoMech recently launched its own transport division to address the trucking and railroad industry requirements for increased sustainability, performance, reliability and efficiency.
The division incorporates NanoMech’s lineup of products aimed at the transportation industry and creates a new segment in the company, said NanoMech CEO Jim Phillips.
“While the outlook for trucking and freight revenues, and the industry in general, look extremely positive, with revenues predicted to double by 2025, industry leaders are on a constant search for innovations to improve safety, reliability and performance of their fleets while at the same time reducing operating costs,” said Phillips.
NanoMech has hired a director of transport and director of transportation technology, along with three additional production engineers. A third shift will also help with increased volume.
“The products are specifically engineered and designed to address the growing demands of trucking industry operating under extreme conditions,” Phillips said.
Products falling under the Transport Division include:
• TriboTuff Ultra Red Truck Grease for truck and tractor chassis lubrication, which extends the lubrication intervals through advanced nanoengineered science.
• GuardX, a multi-functional coating, provides wear, corrosion, water and ultra-violet resistance for trucks, trailers and components, including undercarriages, truck beds and wheels.
“Advanced lubrication and corrosion prevention are the top priorities for extending life and performance for the private and for-hire truck fleets. These lubrication and corrosion problems originate at nanoscale. Our nanoengineered TriboTuff and GuardX technologies and products are scientifically designed to eradicate these industrywide issues,” said NanoMech chief technology officer and founder Ajay Malshe.
