LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Commercial Vehicle Systems Business Area of Haldex AB and Hendrickson have announced the formation of a formal cooperation to make Haldex brakes and controls technology standard on Hendrickson integrated suspensions and axle systems.
The companies will collaborate on the design and integration of their respective products to optimize performance, weight and total life cycle costs for axle, brake and suspension packages. Hendrickson will continue to make available alternative brake and control products as options while Haldex will continue to supply other suspension and axle companies.
In commenting on the relationship, Joe Ross, President of Hendrickson said, “The cooperation with Haldex will permit us to support our customers better by developing innovative, integrated solutions that combine the axle, brake and suspension as a complete system. With this approach we can find more optimal solutions than when we treat these products as individual components.”
Chuck Kleinhagen, Chief Operating Officer of Haldex AB and President of the Commercial Vehicle Systems Business Area, added, “The cooperation with Hendrickson will allow the two companies to offer OEM’s and fleets solutions with completely integrated engineering and a “one-stop shopping” approach. This will reduce the time, effort and costs associated with optimizing the performance and cost of the axle, brake and suspension package.”
