LONGVIEW, Texas – Stemco revealed earlier this week that it has launched the Genuine CentriFuse brake drum product line in a new colour.
The new brake drums are blue in colour to help distinguish the Stemco brand from overseas lookalikes that look like Stemco Genuine CentriFuse products, but do not perform nearly as well, according to the company.
“Launching our Genuine CentriFuse brake drums in a new, easily recognizable colour furthers our mission of making the roadways safer,” said Jeff Bates, Stemco segment business leader for brake drums. “Our customers deserve the reassurance that their fleets are equipped with products they can rely on. The blue colour makes that easier than ever.”
This change applies to Original CentriFuse, CentriFuse Lite, and CentriFuse Wide. CentriFuse HD brake drums, which were changed from black to red in 2014, will continue being sold in their new red colour.
