Innovating commercial vehicle products including wheel ends.



ConMet has been innovating since our inception in 1964 with the purpose of designing and manufacturing lightweight structural parts to the heavy duty market – something that wasn’t currently being done. Over the last 50+ years we have continued to prove that our position as the leader in the commercial vehicle market comes from constantly seeking ways to provide new and more efficient products, processes, and technology that change the way our customers run and maintain their vehicles.

Check back for updates on exciting products we are working on.

We are always open to new ideas and partnerships and would love to hear from you. To contact someone from our innovation & strategic partnership department please email us at
