Fontaine partners with Simard Suspensions

Nov. 13, 2014

Fontaine Modification Vocational Services has partnered with Canadian-based Simard Suspensions to install and distribute Simard’s patented AMS twin-steer front suspension products in the United States and Mexico.

Fontaine is the first post-production installer to complete a long-term working relationship with Simard, Fontaine says.  The Simard tandem steering suspensions are designed to increase a vehicle’s load capacity without impacting its maneuverability. The additional steering axle provided by a Simard AMS tandem suspension helps drivers navigate comfortably in severe terrain on construction and drilling sites, or city streets. The Simard twin steer offers optimal load distribution while working within the original OEM wheel cut and turning radius. AMS suspensions are designed to be lightweight to reduce wear-and-tear on the vehicle, and serviceable parts are positioned in accessible areas for easy maintenance. 

            Fontaine will offer the full range of Simard AMS tandem suspensions, which includes air and spring designs with up to 46,000 lbs. of capacity.

             Fontaine Modification Vocational Services will make Simard Suspension installations available at four of its modification centers across the U.S. The suspensions can be configured to fit nearly any truck, regardless of manufacturer.
