Transport Operator recently posted an article describing Roadlink remanufacturing operations, highlighting the benefits of remanufactured brake components to the United Kingdom commercial-vehicle market. The following is excerpted from the Transport Operator post:
WILLENHALL, U.K. — CV braking components supplier Roadlink International has emphasized both the potential cost savings and environmental benefits of remanufactured brake shoe linings, highlighting the potential of the process to help cut back on landfill waste.
The company says it has long been a fervent believer in the remanufacturing process, reflected in its ongoing investment in remanufacturing and its commitment to helping reduce CO2 emissions.
Remanufacturing in the UK contributes billions to the UK economy, the firm says, and is not only good for the environment thanks to emission reductions but cuts down on raw material and energy consumption.
“Brake Relining Buoyant” says Roadlink
Roadlink brake shoes are not only more environmentally friendly, with all worn linings reprocessed for use within the construction industry, but also offer a cost-effective solution to the CV aftermarket without compromising on quality, the company claims.
Keith Sedgley, Roadlink managing director, said: “Remanufacturing is a vitally important, growing aspect of our industry, not only does it help drive energy conservation and the reduction of raw materials usage, but also the elimination of landfill space.
“Our brake shoe relining facility is currently enjoying a buoyant period and so we’re changing people’s attitudes through our commitment to quality and performance.”
As part of its continued investment in brake shoe relining, Roadlink provides a ‘Brake Assured’ Production Process, providing a guarantee that brake shoes are fully remanufactured to the highest product quality and safety standards possible, with OE quality brake linings and rivets.
Roadlink’s brake shoe reline operation is supported by ISO9001 approved production and ISO14001 environmental accreditation, with every shoe platform checked and linished.
