ELYRIA, Ohio — Advanced safety technologies stemming from Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems’ ABS-6 antilock braking system platform have received attention from outside of the trucking industry.
Frost and Sullivan, a global growth consulting firm, named Bendix the recipient of its 2006 Customer Value Leadership of the Year Award in the North American Class 6 to 8 truck original equipment safety systems category.
The organization cited the extensive investment by Bendix in research and development to boost the safety value of heavy trucks, in particular the focus on the “full stability” solution of its ESP technology, as the primary driver for this recognition. According to Frost and Sullivan, the award recognizes the company’s excellence in developing and introducing active chassis control systems that not only enhance the safety of heavy trucks, but also offer customers high value.
Bendix ABS-6 Advanced with ESP system provides a wide margin of stability on a wide range of driving surfaces. In addition, it’s the foundation for additional technologies such as adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation, telematics and other future advancements in electronics that will deliver even greater levels of safety, information and value to fleets in the future.
“The ABS technology adopted by the company offers it a robust platform to develop and introduce several innovative safety systems and functionalities,” said Sandeep Kar, Frost and Sullivan industry analyst. “Bendix ESP showcases the depth and width of the company’s competence in providing advanced chassis control technologies, as well as its ability to fully utilize an intelligent technology platform, resulting in advanced solutions at affordable incremental costs.”
Criteria for the award include organizations that have offered effective solutions and/or services that provide the highest ratio of value to cost. The recipient must provide customers with products that provide quality, value and innovative applications.
“It’s a tremendous honor being singled out by Frost and Sullivan for best practices related to our innovative, active safety systems technology,” said Andreea Raaber, director, business development and new ventures, Bendix. “Advancing commercial vehicle safety while delivering tangible value to our customers is a focus we strive for every day at Bendix, and to be recognized for our effort is a tribute to our entire organization.”
