ELYRIA, Ohio – Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake is celebrating a decade in business this year.
The company came to be ten years ago when Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems and Dana Commercial Vehicle Products joined forces to create a complete source for OE brake system design, manufacturing, hardware and support.
“We’re proud of how our business has evolved. For 10 years, we have consistently broken new ground and delivered the industry’s most effective, efficient, and forward-looking wheel-end solutions, advancing commercial vehicle technology and helping to improve highway safety,” said BSFB president Eddie Wilkinson. “We also bring our inventive approaches to the global stage as the technological lead and Center for Excellence for drum brakes and actuation for Bendix parent company, the Knorr-Bremse Group.”
During its first decade, BSFB has grown and developed and become a highly decorated company, winning the Paccar 50 PPM quality award in 2010, the Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce Expansion award in 2011 and being recognized as one of the top two worldwide manufacturing sites.
“In just 10 years – and in an ever-more-rapidly changing commercial vehicle environment – BSFB has achieved remarkable successes,” Wilkinson noted. “Most importantly, our team has delivered product performance, safety, value, and support to the industry – benefiting everyone from OEs to fleet operators to drivers. We’re proud to belong to this partnership, and excited to continue pursuing our shared vision and passion for excellence.”
