Hendrickson has acquired Brunner International, based in Medina, New York, and Brunner Manufacturing and Sales, of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. Brunner is a privately owned business that manufactures components for the commercial vehicle, bus, and trailer markets.
Brunner’s primary product lines include brake shoes and S-cams. Hendrickson said these products complement its primary business of designing and manufacturing suspension systems for the medium- and heavy-duty truck and trailer markets.
Brunner Brand to Remain
The Brunner product brand will be kept and used going forward, reported Hendrickson.
Brunner will operate as a division of Hendrickson Brake and Wheel End. Its approximately 325 employees will become employees of Hendrickson.
“It will provide a platform for Hendrickson to expand our core competency in braking and provide additional components that will enhance our existing product portfolio,” said Matt Joy, president and CEO of Hendrickson.
