Borla Performance is now offering Borla Aftermarket exhaust system components and complete exhaust systems to the commercial vehicle industry.
“This is a natural evolution and a growth area for our business”says Alex Borla, founder and CEO. “We will be utilizing our well-developed engineering and manufacturing expertise to produce parts for commercial vehicles fleets that require very high durability and will provide exceptional service life.”
Borla Performance says its exhaust pipes, mufflers, hangers and clamps are manufactured from high-quality T-304 Austenitic Stainless Steel, which is extremely resistant to rust and corrosion and carry a one million mile warranty.
Borla parts and components typically replace OEM parts manufactured of steel or aluminized steel, which are prone to corrosion both from external sources (road salt, sodium and magnesium chloride) as well as internal moisture and acid exposure for exhaust gases which results in ultimate failure. T304 Stainless Steel used by Borla is highly resistant to these chemicals, the company says. Borla pipes also are mandrel bent, which nearly eliminate wrinkles in the material that result in stress risers and failure points, adding to their durability and longevity, the company says.
“We recognize that it’s very important to commercial truck and bus fleets that their vehicles stay out of the repair shop and on the road every day, producing revenue and serving their customer. We believe that once a Borla Commercial exhaust systems or component is installed on a light or medium duty truck it will be the last time that it will need attention for the life of the vehicle,” says David Borla, vice president, sales and marketing.
Borla’s initial entry into the Commercial Vehicle market will begin with complete exhaust systems (less catalytic converter) for gasoline powered Workhorse Custom Chassis W42 and W62 delivery trucks.
Amy Goodman, OE/fleet relations manager at Borla, says the company plans to expand the commercial system offering to include more make and model light- and medium-duty commercial trucks and buses throughout 2016.
