SAF-Holland S.A. has acquired the landing leg (trailer support) product line from Austin-Westran. The acquisition includes Austin-Westran's China-based production operation, which expands SAF-Holland's presence in the world's third-largest and fastest-growing market for commercial vehicles.
Combined with SAF-Holland's technology, the local knowledge and manufacturing base of the Austin-Westran unit will allow SAF-Holland to deliver ever larger volumes of truck and trailer components.
Austin-Westran manufactured landing legs at a site in Xiamen, China, that has an annual production capacity of around 150,000 pairs. SAF-Holland has purchased that manufacturing site and associated assets in the United States.
