SAF-Holland announces that axle production has commenced at its Warrenton MO facility in February 2009 with initial shipments of both drum and disc braked axles. The plant will continue to ramp up production throughout 2009 to eventually provide axles for all of the company's current North American trailer suspension offerings and aftermarket requirements.

Axle-manufacturing operations at the revamped Warrenton North Plant have been integrated into a streamlined facility that will occupy approximately one-half of an existing 235,000-square-foot facility that also houses stamping and roll forming operations. As designed, the plant is capable of producing 80,000 axles per year.

The commencement of axle manufacturing at the Warrenton North Plant marks the completion of the first phase of the SAF-Holland multi-phase program for axle manufacturing in North America.
