Meritor, Fras-le Renew Brake-Lining Supply Agreement

Meritor Inc. and Fras-le S.A. have renewed an exclusive five-year commercial supply agreement for brake lining for the U.S. and Canadian commercial vehicle markets.

Meritor and Fras-le have enjoyed a successful supply partnership for 15 years, including the co-development of friction materials to address the needs of North American commercial vehicles.

“Fras-le is extremely committed to quality friction materials and exceeding the expectations of both production and aftermarket customers,” said Joe Mejaly, president of Meritor Aftermarket and Trailers.

Under the commercial agreement, Fras-le will continue to supply friction materials to Meritor for both production and aftermarket consumption. Fras-le aftermarket brake lining products are exclusively distributed in the U.S. and Canada through Meritor’s North American facilities, including distribution centers in Plainfield, Ind.; Brampton, Ontario.; and Florence, Ky. Meritor currently offers a broad range of Fras-le friction materials in either Meritor or Fras-le brands to serve customers in linehaul, severe service, transit bus, and other commercial applications in North America.
