Australian Brake Controls has been appointed distributor for the world-leading US company AUSCO Products Inc (AUSCO) to service the Australian and New Zealand markets.
AUSCO is a specialist provider of proven off-highway braking solutions and has invented the spring-applied, hydraulically released multiple disc brakes (MDB), says ABC General Manager Bill Watson.
AUSCO manufactures OEM brakes for the construction, agricultural, mining, turf care and ATV (All Terrain Vehicles)/ utility vehicle markets. Their wide range of service and parking brakes includes spring-applied MDBs, hydraulic callipers, mechanical callipers and ball ramp brakes.
The distributorship will enable ABC to source and supply both OE and after-market equivalent components.
ABC is in the process of establishing local stock holdings of a range of core brake units across the AUSCO catalogue range as well as essential service kits and lining and friction materials in order to provide a superior level of service, technical support and after-sales support to the market.
ABC’s highly experienced engineer Mr Gerry Lewis has also received comprehensive training on key products in the AUSCO range at the AUSCO manufacturing facility in Michigan so that the company can deliver high quality technical support to customers.
Current users of off-highway brake products are encouraged to contact ABC to discuss the suitability of AUSCO products for any of their current and future requirements.
