Haldex Grey-Rock approaches 90-year milestone

HaldexHaldex will celebrate the launch of its high-performing heavy-duty friction products line, Grey-Rock, in 2019, according to an announcement.

Providing braking solutions since its inception in 1929, Grey-Rock’s focus on “balanced and safe braking” has been the reason behind Grey-Rock’s longevity, and continues to be used by fleets after nearly a century. The Grey-Rock history of stability through advanced compounding principles continues as expectations for brake linings evolve with today’s heavy-duty vehicle needs, the company states.

“Over the past 90 years Grey-Rock has outfitted hundreds of millions of shoes with the gold standard of stability and versatility in brake linings,” says Walter Frankiewicz, president of Haldex North America and senior vice president of Haldex North American sales. “When fleets demand the critical combination of safety and stopping performance, Grey-Rock has been the answer since 1929.”

Along with a 40-year history as a service and quality leader relative to brake shoe relining processes through its industry leading friction center network, Haldex continues to maintain a line-up of proprietary friction compounds that meet the needs of today’s reduced stopping distance performance specifications, according to the company.
