Meritor Remanufactured Brake Shoes Recognized for Product Quality Leadership
Jan. 23, 2013—Meritor’s Aftermarket business has been awarded the 2012 North American Industry Product Quality Leadership Award by Frost & Sullivan for its remanufactured brake shoes.
According to Frost & Sullivan, “Meritor stands out from the crowd for its leading position in providing innovative braking solutions for original equipment manufacturers of trucks. Leveraging its global production base and supply chain, Meritor has established itself as a leader in brake [shoe] [re]manufacturing.”
The Product Quality Leadership Award recognizes companies demonstrating outstanding achievement and performance in product performance, reliability, design, usability and perceived value.
"We are extremely proud of this recognition for our breakthrough product, but more than that, we're so grateful that we could respond to our customers with a product that works and addresses a long-standing problem in brake shoes—rustjacking," said Terry Livingston, general manager of Global Product Management and Shared Services, Aftermarket & Trailer, for Meritor.
More than 15 million Meritor remanufactured brake shoes have been sold to North American truck operators since the company introduced the product in the spring of 2009.
