Freight Wing, Inc. and their team of aerodynamic industry experts joined forces with Ridge Corporation on April 24th, 2013. Ridge has acquired 100% of the Freight Wing stock. Freight Wing Incorporated was founded in 2003 to provide practical fuel and emission savings through innovative improvements to semi-trailer aerodynamics.
Sean Graham of Freight Wing, Inc. has worked with fleets, OEM’s and various government agencies since the company’s inception to “father” the modern aerodynamic side skirt. Sean’s assembled team of professionals has provided the necessary resources to customers to prove that fuel savings extends beyond CARB initiatives.
“What attracted me to Ridge was the opportunity to enhance the quality and performance of our side skirt though the application of the industry’s finest composite manufacturing know how,” said Graham. “Ridge’s human capital has the know how to provide our existing customers improved product performance and the creative atmosphere to design and refine new fuel savings initiatives no matter what the source of fuel.”
“We are delighted to have Sean join us as Director of Research and Development,” said Gary Grandominico, president of Ridge. “The addition of Sean will add depth to our growing company. We are pleased to add Sean’s aerodynamic engineering expertise to our company.”
