Alliance Truck Parts, a provider of replacement parts for the commercial transportation industry, has expanded its exhaust product line to include torsional and standard bellows. Suited for the heavy-duty market, Alliance bellows are the first true all-makes product of their kind in the industry, the company said.

“The launch of our new bellows marks the first time that drivers are able to purchase these exhaust parts as an all-makes product that can be used on nearly any truck make or truck model,” said Catherine Auckland, director, aftermarket marketing, Daimler Trucks North America. “We are always looking to increase our product portfolio to meet customer needs. The launch of Alliance bellows is the result of a new opportunity in the market and feedback from our customers.”

“The new bellows are sold as kits that contain all of the necessary installation elements including clamps, gaskets and, in some cases, rigid tubes and support brackets to quickly service your vehicle,” the company said. “Along with an improved product design, these kits reduce installation time by up to 75%, as compared to other OEM products.”
