Newly introduced to North American customers, Jurid brake pads will now be available in domestic catalogs – including the Bendix iParts e-catalog found at www.bendixbrakes.com as well as in popular third party e-catalogs beginning in June.
“Getting up-to-date part numbers listed in e-catalogs that our North American customers use will make it easy to locate the appropriate part number and place an order,” said Jim Kelley, director of sales, U.S., for friction materials, a business unit of Honeywell International.
Friction Materials originally announced Jurid’s North American introduction at the AAPEX Show, and since then, has focused on ensuring that the proper list of part numbers is offered and access to data is easy for their customers to obtain.
There is already comprehensive coverage for a number of popular European applications, and more models are being added every month. The line consists of OE specified low-metallic brake pads with OE-style shims, hardware, backing plates, chamfers and slots. In addition, wire wear sensors are available if the OE application calls for it.
“We are excited that the Jurid brand introduction in North America is now official,” said Kelley. “It is a well-known and very reputable product line and we think our customers will be very pleased with our offering.”
Jurid products have been original equipment in the world’s leading cars since 1914. They are an OE supplier to companies such as Mercedes Benz, BMW, Jaguar, Volvo, Audi and Volkswagen. In Europe alone, one in three vehicles use Jurid, and more than 80 million disc brake pads and drum brake linings are produced every year.
