Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems has launched a new business unit focused on remanufacturing.
Bendix has remanufactured compressors, air dryers, valves, and brake shows for more than 35 years, but all of those efforts will now be consolidated under the new business unit.
“Remanufacturing for Class 6, 7, 8, and trailers in North America accounted for $3.1 billion in 2010,” said Steve Mance, Bendix vice president and general manager – charging group. “Remanufacturing offers long-term growth opportunities for Bendix. With our long-established expertise in remanufacturing and deep understanding of market needs, we are well-positioned to expand our efforts and realize the significant growth potential in this area. Furthermore, the remanufacturing business will provide customers an opportunity to purchase remanufactured products that have the same level of performance they have come to expect from a Bendix product.”
Henry Foxx, Bendix director of compressors, will lead the unit. He has 20 years of experience in the industry and joined Bendix in 2005.
