Meritor, Inc. (NYSE: MTOR) has been selected to supply its ELSA225H range of air disc brakes for Scania’s trucks and buses with production starting in 2014.
“We are investing $58 million in air disc brake capabilities at our technical center of excellence and manufacturing facility in Cwmbran, United Kingdom,” said Joe Plomin, vice president, International Operations at Meritor. “This new contract with Scania exemplifies our commitment to be the recognized leader in brake engineering, testing and manufacturing.”
With Meritor’s extended family of air disc brakes, it now offers more optimized products for every vocation. More than four million ELSA air disc brakes have been manufactured with world class field reliability.
The ELSA family of brakes utilizes modular construction, which means the global standard clamping and adjuster mechanisms can be matched with a series of validated bridges and carriers to suit any wheel/axle combination.
“The ELSA family of braking products is the strongest, most robust and reliable that we’ve developed in more than 30 years that we’ve been manufacturing air disc brakes.” Plomin said.
