In July 2008, Meritor acquired Trucktechnic®, a major
remanufacturer and distributor of a complete line of air systems components for
commercial vehicles, based in Liege, Belgium.
Trucktechnic® started its activities in 1982 with the
remanufacturing of a limited range of valves, distributed within the local
Belgian market only. These initial activities enabled the company to gain
experience in the air brake system products for commercial vehicle applications
and to develop engineering know-how that can be seen in today’s products. The
acquired experience and know-how gave Trucktechnic® the expertise to grow and
expand their range of products.
The Trucktechnic® brand expanded Meritor’s European
Aftermarket operation in terms of product offering, geographical footprint and
remanufacturing capability and capacity. Through Trucktechnic®, we now have a
skilled engineering and technical staff who understands the specific needs of
the aftermarket and assist us in achieving our growth objectives in the region.
Products offered under the Trucktechnic® brand include brake kits and
components, in addition to a significant portfolio of remanufactured brake calipers, and trading products such as valves and compressors.
