Talbert Manufacturing, a leading manufacturer of specialized heavy-haul trailers and transportation equipment, promoted Jim Hall and Jamie Myers to division vice presidents. Hall now serves as vice president of operations and Myers works as vice president of purchasing.
“Jim and Jamie bring more than 40 years of experience in the manufacturing industry to these vice president roles. They’ll provide excellent leadership to ensure our customers continue to receive the best quality heavy-haul trailers,” said Troy Geisler, Talbert Manufacturing vice president of sales and marketing.
Hall will manage engineering, manufacturing and IT processes. He has extensive experience leading operations at manufacturing companies, including three years as Talbert’s plant manager and 14 years as director of operations for a suspension company where he oversaw manufacturing, purchasing, maintenance and grounds.
“Talbert leads the industry in creating trailers and features, from designing the first removable hydraulic gooseneck to developing innovative customizations for our customers,” Hall said. “I’m looking forward to working with our team to continue to produce top-of-the-line trailers.”
Myers will oversee parts and materials selection as well as warranty and maintenance. He brings 24 years of experience to his new position, including two years as Talbert’s director of operations.
“Talbert has created a 78 year legacy of building trailers that last for decades, and one key aspect of that is high-quality components,” Myers said. “I enjoy the detail work of selecting premium parts and materials so that our Talbert customers continue to receive trailers that are safe and durable no matter what they choose to haul.”
Hall lives in Rensselaer, Indiana, with his wife and four children, and Myers lives in Monon, Indiana, with his wife and five children.
