LONG GROVE, Ill. (Oct. 28, 2016) — MAT Holdings Inc., along with its subsidiary Ride Control L.L.C., will showcase their respective Bendix- and Gabriel-brand products at the upcoming Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) taking place Nov. 1-3 in Las Vegas.
Various Bendix-brand brake products and friction formulations, along with Gabriel's expanded Guardian line of shocks, struts and ReadyMounts will be on display at booth No. 4250 at the 2016 AAPEX show. Representatives from both brands will be on hand to discuss the product lines with show attendees.
“Gabriel recently expanded the Guardian line as a reaction to the needs of the market, serving our customers who are budget conscious but still expect a high quality product,” said Duncan Greathead, vice president of sales and marketing for Gabriel. “Our introductory strut and ReadyMount coverage includes more than 250 products, with an additional 250 scheduled for release in 2017.”
Mr. Greathead added that the line complements Gabriel's Ultra series by “delivering an affordable and high-quality product” designed to provide a comfortable ride for light vehicles under normal driving conditions.
Visitors to the booth also will get a sneak preview of celebration plans for Gabriel's upcoming HiJackers line 50th anniversary, the company said.
“The HiJackers brand has an important place in ride control history, with an incredible relevance even today,” said Jonathon Gore, director of marketing, Ride Control. “We have big plans for 2017 with Hijackers, and there's nothing like kicking it all off with a bang.”
