Hendrickson and Mack Defense LLC announced they have received a contract award from the U.S. Army for PRIMAAX EX suspension systems on all new Mack Granite armored and armor-capable dump trucks. Bids were submitted beginning in June 2017 and production will continue through May 18, 2025.

Hendrickson Bumper and Trim has released an all makes Aero Clad bumper for ProStar with universal tilt mount that retrofits all model year trucks. The design will convert any fixed mount bumper into a tilt mount configuration and is fully compatible regardless of truck model year.

This year marked the 100th year anniversary of Magnus Hendrickson founding the Hendrickson Motor Truck Company in 1913. Hendrickson is a manufacturer and supplier of medium- and heavy-duty suspension systems and components to the global transportation industry.

Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems celebrated the 10-year anniversary launch of PRIMAAX, a family of severe-service air suspensions for the commercial trucking industry. The original PRIMAAX system was launched in December 2001 followed by an enhanced version of the product, PRIMAAX EX in 2008, which was designed to increase roll stability and improve durability above and beyond the original PRIMAAX’s severe-duty design for even more extreme environments and applications.

Hendrickson has scheduled its next round of technical suspension training for the heavy-duty transportation industry with its ninth session of the Hendrickson Vehicle Suspension Institute (HVSI). Hundreds of technicians from the United States and Canada from independent repair facilities, fleets and OE service dealerships have participated in the past eight installments.

For expanded application capabilities, Hendrickson recently launched the PRIMAAX EX system, an enhanced version of the PRIMAAX heavy-duty, vocational truck air suspension. PRIMAAX EX improves durability and performance while delivering a substantial weight savings alternative to competitive systems, report officials of Hendrickson Truck Systems Group.

The 2008 IAA Commercial Vehicles show in Hannover, Germany, proved a fitting stage for the international unveiling of Hendrickson’s new tagline, “The World Rides On Us.”The tagline will be phased in throughout Hendrickson’s worldwide operations with the introduction in North America culminating at the 2009 Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Ky.
