US brand Meritor will commence production of the MTA25 low-mount and MTA30 low-mount trailer suspensions, the two newest family members of its MTA (Meritor Trailing-Arm Air) suspension series for North American trailer operators.
According to Meritor, the new units units are specifically designed as part of a fully-integrated system to optimise performance and weight, and are “ideal for vocational applications like single-drop flatbed, double-drop flatbed, loggers and chip hauler trailers.”
“During the last 22 months, we’ve brought five models of trailing-arm air suspensions for trailers to the North American market,” said Craig Frohock, General Manager, Global Trailer, Meritor. “We collect feedback from a variety of sources to ensure Meritor is meeting the needs of its customers: no matter the size.”
That information drove the design and engineering of the latest iterations of the MTA. “With the last two MTA models in production at our facility in Frankfort, we’re able to meet all our truck operators’ demands for durability and reliability, plus the key factor of performance in the field,” said Bob Brazeau, Director of Engineering, Aftermarket and Trailer, Meritor. “We know fleets want durable and lightweight products.”
