Abex brake products manufactured and marketed by Federal-Mogul Corporation, a world leader in commercial-vehicle brakes, announces the expansion of the Abex line of commercial-grade brake products for medium-duty vehicles to include more than 3,500 premium hard parts such as wheel cylinders, master cylinders, rotors, drums, remanufactured calipers and a full complement of other brake hydraulics, cables and hardware. The Abex medium-duty offering - which already includes more than 230 different premium disc brake pads and new steel brake shoes - now provides complete brake system coverage for more than 600 vehicle applications.
This expanded medium-duty product line extends well beyond Abex branded disc brake pads and shoes to include premium loaded remanufactured calipers, unloaded remanufactured calipers, brake hoses, master cylinders, wheel cylinders, rotors, drums, hardware kits, power assist units and other components offered by Federal-Mogul. The new-expanded line is now available as a comprehensive medium-duty program through Abex brake distributors.
“This extensive new product offering enables distributors to become a one-stop source for virtually any popular medium-duty braking application,” said Brian Rassin, director, commercial vehicle friction, Federal-Mogul. “We offer the premium quality demanded by today’s vehicle operators as well as the coverage and accessibility distributors require to increase their share of the huge medium-duty market.”
Distributors and service providers choosing Federal-Mogul’s Abex product line now also have comprehensive coverage of school bus applications - including Amtran, Blue Bird, Ford, Freightliner, GMC, International, Mid Bus, Thomas Bus, and US Bus - as well as the market’s most complete coverage of DaimlerChrysler Sprinter vans in addition to the coverage for all domestic and import nameplate commercial vehicles.
“Fleet technicians and service shops traditionally have had to source parts from three or four suppliers or vehicle dealerships when working on this vehicle segment. Now they can choose their Abex distributor for a full package of premium replacement parts,” Rassin said.
