HUNTINGTON, Ind. — Bendix has announced it has expanded remanufacturing capabilities at its Huntington, Ind. plant.
The company has invested US$3.2 million into the facility, which produces remanufactured brake shoes, handling the complete salvage, coining and assembly processes.
Bendix has been remanufacturing brake shoes at the plant since the fall of 2012 and has since produced more than 1.9 million remanufactured brake shoes there.
“As the commercial vehicle industry continues to adapt to ever-changing regulations and compliance standards, fleets and owner/operators are turning in greater numbers to high-quality remanufactured brake shoes as a solution in their parts strategy,” said Henry Foxx, Bendix director of remanufactured products. “The Bendix Brake Shoe Remanufacturing Center grew from our desire to provide reman brake shoes offering the durability, reliability, performance, and extended lining life expected of original equipment. With the completion of the next phase of production expansion, in tandem with our three-tiered portfolio of reman brake shoe offerings, Bendix is better equipped than ever to meet every customer’s need for safety, performance, and value.”
Bendix brake shoes cool down following the application of the advanced coating and the tightly controlled oven curing process that provide maximum protection against rust jacking.
