Bendix Grows Reman Business, Responding To Industry Demand For OE-Quality Components

Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC says it is continuing to build on its nearly 40-year legacy as a remanufacturing leader, growing its reman business and further developing its operations and offerings. The company currently offers remanufactured brake shoes, valves, air dryers, compressors and electronics for commercial vehicles.

“Across the industry, we’re seeing a renewed focus on remanufacturing as more fleets, technicians and drivers discover the benefits of partnering with a skilled, established and technology-driven remanufacturer,” said Henry Foxx, Bendix director of remanufactured products. “Properly remanufactured components are great alternatives to new parts, helping extend vehicle life while reducing replacement costs – and without sacrificing original equipment manufacturing quality. And as we’ve continued to evolve and improve our long-standing reman product lines, we’ve also recently expanded them to include electronic components – such as radar units – that are a part of active safety systems.”

Bendix says it plans to further extend its remanufactured product offerings this year. Sales of Bendix remanufactured components have grown by double digits year-over-year, led by a 50 percent increase in Bendix-branded remanufactured shoe sales.

Last fall, U.S. Xpress Enterprises, the nation’s second-largest privately owned truckload carrier, selected Bendix remanufactured brake shoes for the brake replacement needs of its fleet of 8,000 over-the-road tractors and 22,000 trailers. U.S. Xpress is primarily using Bendix Advanced BA202R, the industry’s first aftermarket friction certified to maintain compliance with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) mandate for Reduced Stopping Distance (RSD).

Since launching its remanufactured brake shoe operation in 2012, Bendix has assembled more than 2.5 million shoes and expanded the production capabilities and capacity at its Brake Shoe Remanufacturing Center in Huntington, Ind.
