ELYRIA, Ohio – Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems announced today that it has hit a delivery milestone.
The company claims to date, it has officially delivered more than 400,000 Bendix Electronic Stability Program (ESP) systems, thanks in part to its growing sales over the last five years.
The product was the first full-stability solution widely available for the commercial vehicle market and meets the stability mandate of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The Bendix ESP full-stability system is not activated on this tanker, which is equipped with outriggers for safety on the test track.
“More and more fleets, truck makers, and drivers are turning to Bendix ESP, and they’re doing so with confidence in a rigorously tested, reliable system that has been proven over many millions of real-world miles since its launch 10 years ago,” said Scott Burkhart, Bendix vice-president – sales, marketing, and business development. “The technology rewards fleets by helping to decrease the number of heavy truck accidents and improve safety records, while delivering the value they require. As NHTSA’s mandate is implemented, the benefits of full stability will be experienced industry wide and help to improve highway safety even further.”
The Bendix ESP was introduced back in 2005. It took six years to reach the 100,000 units sold mark, but it was tripled in the next three-year period. Both Mack and Volvo offer the product as standard equipment on its highway tractors. Bendix ESP is also standard on a majority of Peterbilt’s Class 8 trucks, and more than 80% of all medium-duty chassis configurations at Paccar and Navistar.
