ELYRIA, Ohio – Bendix has doubled solenoid valve and assembled manifold manufacturing capabilities at its Acuna, Mexico manufacturing plant.
The US$1.5 million investment saw a new low-flow solenoid production line and a new manifold line added.
“Modern solenoids are capable of managing more than a dozen pneumatic accessories – we’re talking fifth wheel slide locks, lift axles, air horns, and wheel differential locks, in addition to others,” said Rebecca Carter, Bendix product manager, specialty valves. “Fleets and original equipment manufacturers are looking to Bendix for custom, advanced, low-flow solenoid solutions to meet a practically limitless range of vehicle needs, and these new lines in Acuna enable us to meet a growing demand with increased flexibility.”
