Roadlink reports CV caliper remanufacturing success one year on
Published: 15 March, 2017
Roadlink International is reporting a significant increase in demand for its commercial vehicle (CV) caliper remanufacturing facility a year after it was launched.
The facility in Willenhall, West Midlands, was officially opened by Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT) chief executive Mike Hawes on 14 March 2016 with more than 50 dignitaries from the trade and local area in attendance.
The larger facility was part of a £700k investment which included advanced equipment and more staff, allowing the CV supplier to remanufacture calipers more quickly without compromising quality.
Keith Sedgley, Roadlink joint managing director, said: ‘It has been a busy and successful year with our new facility allowing us to meet the continuing increase in demand for remanufactured calipers.
‘The CV parts trade recognises the beneficial impact of using remanufactured parts and we are keen to promote the process to the wider market.
‘The investment has secured our status as a CV caliper remanufacturing leader, enabling us to carry out the labour-intensive process in an efficient manner while ensuring quality and traceability. All of our remanufactured calipers are restored back to their original quality after undergoing a series of strict tests and procedures, offering customers considerable savings.’
As one of the leading suppliers of parts for commercial vehicles, Roadlink currently offers a complete range of new and remanufactured braking solutions, including calipers and brake shoes as well as an extensive range of pads, discs and drums.
