Meritor has been named a “master distributor” by TSE Brakes, enabling Meritor to distribute that company’s TSE’s OmniBrake and UltraLife air spring brake chambers to North American customers, effective immediately.

The two TSE products will be available through Meritor’s U.S.-based distribution centers in Florence, KY, and in Canada from locations in Brampton, Ontario and Edmonton, Alberta.

“Our customers deserve the dependable availability of a single source for their wheel-end product needs, and this agreement enhances and expands Meritor’s broad product offering,” said Tim Bauer, senior director, Undercarriage Products, Aftermarket for Meritor. “The agreement also streamlines prepaid freight access to TSE’s OmniBrake and UltraLife products from Meritor’s two distribution centers.”

In addition to the two TSE products, Meritor will continue to offer customers a third air brake chamber under Meritor’s AllFit brand. Meritor produces all service components for the three chamber offerings. 

“We are pleased to partner with Meritor and believe its market reach positions TSE’s brake chamber products positively,” said Mike Caggiano, vice president, sales and marketing for TSE Brakes.
