Bendix will provide a fully dressed cab module for the complete assembly of the Autocar Xpeditor low-cab-forward Class 8 truck per a new business agreement.
According to Autocar, the environmentally friendly Xpeditor features improved cab ergonomics, integrated controls, and superior body-chassis interface. Bendix produced the first cab module dedicated to the Autocar business earlier this week.
“We believe our partners are integral to our company’s success, and we look forward to a long, productive relationship with Bendix,” said Ryan Billet, chief financial officer for Autocar. “Bendix delivers the module expertise and commitment to excellence that will enable us to continue and enhance our legacy of quality and performance. We expect Bendix to be a significant supplier partner for years to come.”
According to the company, partnering with Bendix for module development and assembly allows OEMs to streamline operations by reducing inventory and operational costs.
