Haldex Brake Systems has announced a $12 million expansion of its Friction Product Center, located just outside of Montgomery, AL. The center produces friction material in both drum brake lining and disc brake pads for light, medium and heavy duty trucks. The new 50,000-square-foot addition will house a continuous flow manufacturing process for Friction Product Center's disc brake market. Phase one expansion is expected to finish by the first quarter of 2001.
Haldex is also expanding the way it handles warranty processing by opening a centralized warranty center in order to streamline the warranty process for Haldex customers. All inquiries concerning used product, either by an OEM or a fleet, will be routed through this organization for tracking and resolution. Haldex representatives will be contacting OEMs and fleets with details on how to use this new system.
