Brake Supply Hosts Open House at New Mansfield Facility

Tue September 01, 2009 - West Edition

Brake Supply Heavy Equipment Parts and Components sponsored an open house Aug. 14 for its new 78,000-sq.-ft. facility that is dedicated to repair, rebuilding and warehousing of items such as final drives, drive lines, differentials, cylinders, brakes and pumps for very large equipment.

More than 75 customers turned out for tours of the facility, lunch and were treated to a Texas Ranger baseball game that evening.

“Moving from a smaller temporary location in Fort Worth to the new enlarged facility in Mansfield, Texas has been really exciting,” stated Dave Stewart, operations manager. “Mansfield is the 2nd largest of all the Brake Supply facilities.”

Brake Supply is an ISO certified company that has developed remanufacturing standards that meet or exceed OEM standards. Since 1947, Brake Supply has endeavored to maintain exchange inventories of more than 30 million dollars to fill same day orders for most items used on large heavy equipment. The new facility is a welcome addition to the already existing 300,000-sq.-ft. facilities strategically located throughout the United States in Indiana, West Virginia, Kentucky, Wyoming, Nevada, Canada and now Texas.

“Our guests were able to get a first hand view of our environmentally friendly facility and were very pleased to learn that they have an alternative source to supply many of the major components to keep their production levels from being interrupted,” concluded Stewart.
