VANCOUVER, Wash. - January 10, 2023 - (

ConMet Digital is pleased to announce a partnership with Stephens Pneumatics, a manufacturer of highly customized tank trailers, transporters, and vehicle beds, to supply telematics systems for new tank trailer builds. Starting immediately, fleets have the option to add any ConMet Digital data solution to new tank trailer orders from Stephens Pneumatics.

The partnership is built upon a foundation of shared goals and values. Both companies are known for their unique focus on making the roads safer through a combination of high-quality products, attentive and customized service, and innovative solutions.

"We are excited to offer our customers the added visibility and safety benefits that ConMet Digital data solutions provide," said Stephens Pneumatics President, Stan Stephens. "The ConMet Digital services complement our high level of expertise, reliability, and service that our clients have come to associate with the Stephens name." 

The ConMet Digital suite of products provides fleet managers, drivers, and dispatchers with real-time visibility of a vehicle, including critical component condition and asset location:

  • The PreSet Plus® SmartHub™ telematics solution provides fleets visibility into the condition of the wheel end ecosystem, including hubs, tires, and brakes. Real-time alerts of any abnormalities give drivers or maintenance managers a chance to act before roadside repairs, thermal events, and wheel-offs happen. 
  • SmartTrack™ asset management provides accurate, up-to-the-minute GPS location to maximize productivity and monitor driver behavior. This solution provides insights such as asset speed and elevation, total distance traveled, and custom geofence alerts. The GPS location can help quickly find drivers that have been in an accident and aid in theft recovery, elevating safety and security. 
  • The SmartAir™ TPMS sends alerts when tire pressure falls outside of a predetermined pressure range, helping fleets make more informed tire maintenance decisions to extend tire life, improve fuel efficiency, and increase safety. 
  • SmartAir™ line pressure monitoring from ConMet Digital provides real-time visibility into emergency brake air pressure status. With this solution, fleets and drivers can easily view alerts and analyze trend data during pre-trip or maintenance checks and, while in motion, take quick corrective action to optimize emergency brake performance.
  • The SmartAir™ axle load solution provides real-time air-suspension-based axle load monitoring. Alerts enable pre-trip load adjustments to reduce over-weight fines and violations.

Fleets are seamlessly connected to actionable intelligence through a single-screen experience, accessible through the user's preferred dashboard on a computer, tablet, or smartphone. The ConMet Digital dashboard allows fleet managers, maintenance managers, or dispatchers to access real-time insights, notification history, and historical trends of multiple assets in one location, while the ConMet Digital Driver Mobile Application assists with pre-trip inspections and sends drivers real-time alerts when action is needed on the road. Users can also set alerts to distribute via email and SMS text message.

"Our goal at ConMet Digital is to help fleets make data-driven decisions that lead to improvements in utilization, uptime, safety, and maintenance," said Paul Washicko, Vice President and General Manager of ConMet Digital. "We're proud to partner with Stephens and together be able to meet the unique needs of the tanker trailer segment where safety is a top priority."

New Children’s Picture Book Addresses Bullying, Body Image, Weight-Shaming and Self-Esteem, Opening Opportunities for Important Conversations Between Kids and Adults

'Chubby the Bear’s Big Choice,' by Author Daryl R. McCullough and Illustrated by Maryanne Smith, Sets Its Story Among the Enchanting California Redwoods, Where a Young Bear Fends Off Bullies and Self-Doubt and Regains Self-Esteem and Acceptance

New Children’s Picture Book Addresses Bullying, Body Image, Weight-Shaming and Self-Esteem, Opening Opportunities for Important Conversations Between Kids and Adults
'Chubby the Bear's Big Choice'

Author Daryl R. McCullough?s second book, 'Chubby the Bear?s Big Choice,' is set in a California redwood forest and tells the story of a sensitive, young bear struggling with bullies and his self-esteem issues.

Author Daryl R. McCullough’s second book, “Chubby the Bear’s Big Choice,” is set in a California redwood forest and tells the story of a sensitive, young bear struggling with bullies and self-esteem issues. This tender new book offers children, parents, and others of all ages an engaging story with several timely lessons on bullying, body image, weight-shaming, and self-esteem to be shared and discussed. Parents and children’s therapists have already heralded the book as an essential tool on the subject matter. Order now at Amazon, Barnes & NobleTarget or Archway Publishing.

Chubby is a fitting follow-up to McCullough’s award-winning first book “The Story of Tree and Cloud” — 1st Place, Pen Craft Awards; Finalist/5-Stars, “Reader’s Choice Book Awards”; 1st Place, “Firebird Awards”; and 3rd Place, “Best Children’s Book" and "Best Illustrated & Picture Book," Spring 2022, Outstanding Creator Awards. “Tree and Cloud” is a story about loss and managing grief, also set among California’s natural beauty, starring a California live oak tree named Folie and her new friend Puddle. “Chubby the Bear’s Big Choice” is similarly illustrated — not as a cartoon, but in a pure and naturalist style — by McCullough’s 80-year-old aunt Maryanne Smith, an acclaimed nature artist from Pennsylvania. 

“I grew up a chubby child who was bullied and weight-shamed by my peers and even by teachers and staff in grade school,” McCullough said. “I hope that by sharing this story, any child who might be dealing with these issues and feelings can find the strength to talk about it with their parents and learn self-care. 

“Of course, I also hope the story might thwart a bully or two, providing a teachable moment for them that our individuality is powerful, and compassion is paramount in any friendship,” McCullough said.

The story follows its hero, Chubby, a sensitive young bear cub with a rare talent for befriending honeybees and perhaps enjoying too much of their honey. Bullied by other bear cubs in the forest, Chubby finds solace by retreating up in the air, high in the branches of the redwood trees. One day, Chubby’s mood gets lifted by his forest friends — a sweet raccoon and a wise beaver — and Chubby embarks on a journey to reclaim his self-esteem, choosing to teach the other cubs a lesson along the way. Ultimately, Chubby takes the high road and shows others he is emotionally mature enough to stand up for himself while showcasing his strengths in a thrilling culmination of the tale, which ends happily for all.

Available now, the book invites readers of all ages to embark on a powerful journey of self-discovery and empathy and helps foster essential conversations and empower the next generation. 

“This magical story touched my heart and reminded me how, as a mother of two fabulous daughters, I always had my eye on bullying, particularly when it came to body shaming. Bullies teach us all how not to behave! Conversely, I taught my girls that staying connected with their bodies and loving and sharing their unique gifts with others were some of the healthiest ways to care for themselves and live fulfilled lives. Life is indeed a gift, so like Chubby, let’s all choose love, acceptance, and kindness!” — Melora Hardin, Emmy-nominated star (“The Office,” “Transparent,” “Dancing with the Stars,” “Monk”)
