Haldex, the Wielton Group Sign Three-Year Contract


Source: Haldex release

LANDSKRONA, Sweden – Haldex and the Wielton Group have entered into an agreement where Haldex will be the leading supplier of EBS and air suspension systems, thus supporting the Wielton Group to expand its services for fleets all over Europe.

The parties have signed a three-year contract, including supply of EBS and air suspension systems, to the Wielton Group, one of the leading trailer manufacturers in Europe. The Wielton Group manufactures approximately 16.000 vehicles per year, and its portfolio of brands include Wielton, Poland (8,000 trailers), Fruehauf, France (5,000 trailers), Lawrence David, UK (2,500 trailers) and Langendorf, Germany, (1,000 trailers). 

EBS controls the braking system electronically and can distribute the braking force differently between the wheels depending on need which results in a shorter braking distance compared to systems without EBS where the braking force on the wheels is always the same. The contract with the Wielton Group will be the first under which Haldex will supply the new generation – EBS 4.0.

With an estimated value of a two-digit number in MEUR, the current partnership has been significantly expanded. Start of operations is planned to the end of first quarter 2021.
