Air system solutions company for the commercial vehicle industry, Meritor Wabco, says it has been named the standard position steer axle service brake chamber supplier for all Daimler Trucks North America air brake vehicles.

"Our strength is in engineering parts for optimised performance," said Meritor Wabco president and general manager, Jon Morrison.

"This allows truck manufacturers to reduce the cost of ownership and increase payload capability."

Meritor Wabco service brake chambers feature smaller packaging, lighter weight and increased durability, says the company.

Production began in October for use on front axle truck applications.
