Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems announced it has begun serial production of remanufactured brake shoes at its new Bendix Brake Shoe Remanufacturing Center in Huntington, Ind. The move to insource reman brake shoe operations is part of the company’s previously announced launch of its centralized remanufacturing business unit. The unit maintains remanufacturing centers in both Huntington and Acuña, Mexico.
“Delivering Bendix brand reman shoes directly from within Bendix is a natural next step in our long-term business growth goals and enables the wheel-end group an exceptional opportunity to serve the needs of the North American aftermarket customer base more effectively,” said Henry Foxx, director of Bendix Remanufacturing. “With the ability to offer top-quality high-performing shoes and kits, we bring even greater balance to the evolving menu of Bendix brand reman and wheel-end products.”
