Meritor is the worldwide braking leader in both size
and capability for the commercial vehicle industry, supplying more than two
million brake assemblies per year for trucks, trailers, buses and coaches. Our
brakes can be found on trailers, buses and coaches, and in such vocational
applications as emergency, linehaul, fire and defense. We enjoy a market-leading
position with cost of ownership optimized through the application of advanced
predictive techniques and innovative manufacturing processes.
Meritor is driven by safety. We work daily
to engineer safety into every brake system, detail and control. Safety
directs our innovation into every braking product we make, from drum and air
disc brakes, to hubs and drums; and automatic slack adjusters to hydraulic
brakes and friction products. Additionally, our innovative PlatinumShield™
coating technology is available on some brake shoes to resist Rust-Jacking and
provide extended brake shoe life and lasting value for our customers.
In North America, our Meritor WABCO joint venture
also supplies active safety systems such as pneumatic and hydraulic anti-lock
braking systems for tractors and trailers, stability control and collision
avoidance systems. Our mission is to not only meet contemporary braking
standards, but to keep advancing the cause of safety, wherever it may lead.
New Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards
(FMVSS-121) take effect Aug. 1, 2011. For more information on how Meritor meets
