Meritor Inc. announced a new standard position agreement with Extreme Trailers LLC. Under the three-year agreement, Meritor will supply MTA and MTA-Tec6 suspensions with its latest generation EX+ LS single piston air disc brakes as well as the Meritor Tire Inflation System (MTIS).
“Extreme Trailers was integral to our development process and a key partner in helping launch our MTA-Tec6. This suspension is another example of Meritor’s commitment to innovation and collaboration with our customers to deliver value-added solutions for the trailer market,” says Saad Malik, Meritor general manager, Front Drivetrain and Trailer.
“We are pleased to enter into this agreement with Meritor that will strengthen our already successful relationship. Meritor has been a valuable partner to Extreme Trailers, helping us to grow our brand and supplying us with innovative new products. We look forward to more first-class support and industry-leading ideas as we assist our customers with weight reduction and up-time,” says Extreme Trailers Vice President of Supply Chain Luke Smith.
The MTA-Tec6 is Meritor’s lightest-weight trailer suspension, offering up to 23,000-lb. capacity for tankers, flatbeds and other demanding vocational applications. It features a unique bolt-on lift kit, which provides easy assembly and enhances maneuverability and application flexibility. The MTIS tire inflation system keeps tires properly inflated to reduce wear, extend tire life and improve fuel economy, the company says.
