The move is a joint partnership with Randon Participacoes, Caxias do Sul in Brazil. Randon consists of a number of companies specializing in numerous Latin American truck markets.

Suspensys will focus on truck suspensions, trailer axles and suspensions and related wheel-end equipment. The partnership will bring together ArvinMeritor’s product technology and Randon’s manufacturing and operations experience.
