ArvinMeritor division teams with Liteflex

ArvinMeritor's Worldwide Suspension Systems division said that it has entered into a joint agreement with Liteflex LLC to be the sole distributor of current Liteflex truck and trailer composite mechanical springs on a global basis.

ArvinMeritor and Liteflex will develop integrated composite suspension systems that will address heavy-duty truck, trailer and specialty markets' needs for lighter weight and better riding suspensions. Several new systems will be available later this year, ArvinMeritor said.

"We plan to continue to support the OEMs and will work to integrate the composite suspensions into their vehicles from the planning and designing stage," said Dan Chien, business unit director, Worldwide Suspension Systems, who added that the composite suspensions also will be available to its aftermarket and fleet customers.
