LISLE, Ill. — Navistar and Meritor, a supplier of drivetrain, mobility, braking, and aftermarket solutions for commercial vehicles, have entered an agreement to co-brand premium brake shoe kits offered through the Fleetrite heavy-duty parts brand.

The agreement covers approximately 50 part numbers that will be labeled Fleetrite Manufactured by Meritor.     
“This agreement demonstrates our continued partnership with Meritor to offer quality products that also provide bottom line value to our customers,” said Joel Larsen, vice president of global parts product management at Navistar. “The rapid sales growth of our Fleetrite brand is due in large part to customer acceptance of our brake component offerings. They know they can rely on two of the most trusted names in the industry to offer premium parts, like Fleetrite Manufactured by Meritor products, that keep their trucks and buses on the road.”

Fleetrite provides maintenance and repair parts for all major heavy- and medium-duty truck and bus applications and is distributed throughout the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Europe, and Asia through International Truck dealers and IC Bus dealers. Fleetrite also has production-level components on new International brand trucks.
