Meritor, a supplier of original equipment brakes, has announced the extension of its warranty to two-years unlimited kilometres/miles on all its remanufactured brake calipers.
Reflecting a widespread demand for remanufactured major components, the extended warranty will apply to European aftermarket for truck and bus markets purchasing Meritor remanufactured caliper products.
Remanufactured components are increasingly preferred by the independent aftermarket, due to their environmental and cost benefits.

This extended warranty reflects our belief that these standards can be delivered consistently across all customers. Our aim is to continue developing remanufacturing technology further for many years to come, matching the sustainability aims of our customers and that of our business.”
