Application coverage provided by Tenneco’s Monroe Brakes offering has grown by 88.3 million registered vehicles in 2016, with nearly 150 additional brake pad and shoe part numbers introduced across the company’s Total Solution, Monroe ProSolution and Severe Solution product families.
The Monroe Brakes brand represents a single-source solution for automotive service providers seeking premium, original equipment-equivalent brake components that help enhance technician productivity and ensure strong customer satisfaction and loyalty.
“Our coverage expansion has kept pace with very strong sales growth across North America as more shops have discovered the impressive performance benefits and business value of relying on Monroe Brakes,” said Tony Carter, the brand’s marketing and product manager. “We plan to continue this momentum in 2017 by further expanding our premium-product coverage of late-model North American, European and Asian vehicles.”
Tenneco, this year, has added 45 part numbers to its offering of Total Solution ultra-premium brake pads, which are packaged complete with everything needed for the repair for most applications. Total Solution pads feature ultra-premium ceramic or semi-metallic friction formulations and shim technologies, stainless steel noise reduction hardware, Sensory Locking backing plates, and wire wear sensors, where applicable. Tenneco also includes brake lubricant with each Total Solution pad set.
Monroe ProSolution brake pads—featuring premium ceramic or semi-metallic friction formulations engineered for significant noise reduction, long pad life and superior stopping performance—are now available for approximately 97 percent of North American passenger vehicles through the introduction of 70 additional pad sets in 2016.
Tenneco also has introduced 19 additional Severe Solution pad sets this year. Monroe Severe Solution brake pads are engineered for hard-working trucks, emergency and fleet vehicles and other severe-use applications and feature premium, application-specific friction materials that provide excellent high-temperature stability and fade resistance and outstanding wear characteristics.
Tenneco also has launched 13 new OE-style brake shoe sets, including shoes for parking brake applications.
