PowerStop® Adds to Truck Brake Range

BEDFORD PARK, Ill. — PowerStop®, a leader in brake solutions since 1995, recently introduced Z47 Medium Duty & Fleet brake pads to its lineup of products for the Class 4 to 7 hydraulic brake vehicle market. 

This new product adds to its already successful Z36 brake pads that many last-mile fleets have found gives them a “break” on how often they must complete a brake job.

“We are not just another brake supplier, as we supply a brake solution,” Gordon Virginski, who recently joined PowerStop® as its new National Sales Manager – Fleet Solutions.

“PowerStop® understands the challenges fleet managers face by offering durable solutions to ensure low cost-per-mile and maximize vehicle uptime.

“Our newest product, Z47 Medium Duty & Fleet brake pad, is Carbon-Fiber Semi-Metallic and designed to give the proper performance and ROI for vehicles running full gross vehicle weight on a daily basis such as delivery, shuttle bus, ambulance/fire rescue, utility companies, and many others.

“This product, along with our Z36 Truck & Tow Carbon-Fiber Ceramic brake pads, gives last mile and normal duty medium duty fleets a complete product offering to reduce overall operating costs.”
