Meritor and Brakes India have announced the signing of a licensing and technology assistance agreement for the manufacture and sale of Meritor ELSA air disc brakes in India.

The agreement, which expands on an existing licensing agreement for B-frame hydraulic disc brakes, air drum and air disc brakes, builds on the long-term, successful cooperation between both companies in the Indian market, Meritor said.

More than 5 million Meritor ELSA brakes have been sold globally. In India, ELSA 225H air disc brakes have been operating on major fleets for several years and have gained acceptance as a cost-effective and reliable safety improvement, particularly for buses and coaches, Meritor noted.
