Ridewell Suspensions announced an expansion to its Springfield, Missouri, facility. Ridewell, a leading manufacturer of air-ride suspensions for the truck, trailer bus and RV industries, recently completed a 53,000-square-foot addition to the manufacturing plant.
Driven by the company's need for increased manufacturing space, the expansion includes an automated axle line to efficiently integrate Ridewell Axles with Ridewell Suspensions.
The new space allows Ridewell to install new robotic equipment to handle larger suspensions for the motorcoach/recreational vehicle markets.
"We are adding new tools and technologies to help us gain efficiency, consistency, and higher quality," said president John Raidel II, "and ultimately, it's all about our customers who want the best quality, best value ... just the 'best in class.' "
