East Manufacturing, a Randolph, Ohio-based manufacturer of truck trailers, has named David Miedl its new director of aftermarket parts sales and service. He replaces Ted Hutchison, who is retiring after 25 years with the company.

Miedl will oversee the parts sales and service department and will be responsible for all managerial, administrative and analytical support duties. In addition, he will be charged with growing the business by improving delivery lead-times, reducing back orders and researching aftermarket opportunities. In his position, Miedl will report to Dave de Poincy, president of East Manufacturing.

Miedl comes to East Manufacturing with 25 years in the trailer parts and service business. Most recently, Miedl was an outside parts sales representative at A&H Trucking, and prior to that, he was outside parts sales and service manager at Transport Services Inc., where he oversaw the service department.

Before joining Transport Services, Miedl was the owner of Cleveland Semitrailer LLC, where he provided aftermarket parts sales and service for the Cleveland, Ohio, area for eight years.

“This position is critical to the success of our company and will be an excellent platform for long-term career growth,” says de Poincy. “Dave has the background and leadership traits to help East grow the aftermarket segment of the business.”
