The Original Gabriel has signed agreements with four new master distributors of its Fleetline and GasSLX products to the heavy-duty aftermarket, effective immediately.
The four newly appointed distributors are: Aurora Parts and Accessories, LLC; Automann USA; FleetPride, Inc. and Fort Garry Industries LTD.
Gabriel is discerning in its selection, ensuring that the end customer’s experience with a master distributor is consistent with the Gabriel brand, its heritage and its enduring quality products, the company says. Gabriel says it recently parted ways with its previous distribution source, removing a layer separating it from its master distributors and customers.
“Having a more direct distribution channel has been our goal for some time and we welcome direct interaction with our heavy-duty aftermarket customers,” says Lisa Bahash, president and CEO. “Heavy-duty customers will receive excellent service through Gabriel’s long-established distribution system and know-how.”
The Gabriel lineup includes Fleetline 83,000 series shocks for Class 3-6 vehicles, Fleetline 85,000 series for Class 6-8 trucks, buses and trailers, Fleetline cab shocks, and GasSLX, an adjustable shock for Class 7-8 trucks and buses.
