Las Vegas – (Jan. 22, 2013) – Meritor’s North American Aftermarket business, based in Florence, Ky., announced the immediate availability of truck and trailer suspension controls, including ride height controls, load scale, lift axle controls, dump valve units and single axle dump systems.
Announced here at the Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week, the controls are available immediately from the company’s Florence, Ky., and Brampton, Ontario, distribution centers, to all North American warehouse distributors and OEM dealers. They are made by a North American supplier with exacting function, durability and quality standards.
“These new Meritor-brand suspension controls offer customers a quick and easy quality alternative to sourcing these important but often overlooked products from their primary aftermarket parts supplier: Meritor,” said Tim Bauer, director, Undercarriage Products.
These products are members of Meritor’s new AllFit product series that addresses the all-makes market segment demanded by fleets, owner-operators and installers for quality all-makes suspension controls.
The company’s research indicates that truck operators of all sizes – fleets, owner-operators, plus installers – rely heavily on their various suppliers for such components as suspension controls. Meritor’s comprehensive offering offers a one-stop-shopping alternative to the other suppliers.
“Our customers want fast and reliable choices and now they have the quality assurance of Meritor. Offering these controls is a natural complement to our other products,” Bauer said.
The company’s sister brand, Euclid, has offered customers suspension components for many years: bushings, equalizers, hangers, u-bolts, threaded rods, torque rods, air springs, shock absorbers, urethane components and air valves and repair kits.
