ACOFAS has been invited to the Hendrickson-International facility in Woodridge, Il.
This is the center where much of the research, development, and testing of Hendrickson Truck related suspension products is performed.
Many enhancements have been made to these suspension systems and some have not been announced to the trade press at this time.
Hendrickson will train us on: AIRTEK, SOFTEK, STEERTEK NXT, PRIMAAX EX, HAULMAAX, and ULTIMAAX SYSTEMS.
Hendrickson has also added a testing laboratory to test the benefits of the Hendrickson rubber bushings versus urethane bushings. We will not see this facility however a engineer that heads up this test will be present to talk with us.
Lucas Deal, Editor of Truck Parts & Service will be in attendance to cover this ACOFAS Education Clinic. Lucas articles can be read in most Randall Reilly Publications, such as CCJ and Overdrive.
