The expansion includes growth in the twin-tube Excel-G and Strut-Plus lineups as well as additions to KYB’s popular monotube lines of Gas-a-Just and MonoMax.
Inclusions to KYB’s already industry leading coverage for monotube shocks and struts include applications for half and three quarter ton domestic and import trucks and SUV applications as well.
“The growth of our coverage for the truck and SUV market in North America is vital to the overall success of the KYB brand”, KYB Product Manager Tim Oldiges said. “Listening to our customers is paramount to what we include in our product lineup when it comes to the truck market. When we announce a coverage expansion, particularly in our Gas-a-Just or MonoMax lineups, it is our customers who have spoken up about the benefits of having an upgraded KYB unit to help the vehicle. We feel strongly this recent expansion will provide increased sales for our distribution partners.”
KYB Corporation is a $4.2 billion global hydraulics manufacturer with over 8,100 employees and sells its products in over 100 countries.
The company is one of the world’s largest supplier of shocks and struts to vehicle manufacturers and has a full range of domestic and import shocks and struts for the aftermarket.
