Scott Fulton, Matt Van Meter Named to New Director Posts at Hendrickson Trailer Suspension Systems

CANTON, Ohio - Scott Fulton recently assumed duties as director of product development and Matt Van Meter as director of product validation for Hendrickson Trailer Suspension Systems.

The promotions to newly created positions allow a clearer separation of the product development and product validation processes, reported Phil Pierce, Hendrickson director of global trailer products, in announcing the actions.

Fulton earned a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from Purdue University at West Lafayette, Ind.

Elevated from the post of research and development manager, Van Meter also held positions of senior test engineer and test engineer in his nine-year tenure at Hendrickson trailer.

He holds a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from The Ohio State University at Columbus, Ohio.
