FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. — Automotive braking system components manufacturer Akebono Brake Corp. has expanded its portfolio, offering four Pro-Act and two Euro disc brake pad kits.
The four Pro-Act kits feature premium stainless hardware, Akebono said, while both Euro kits include required electronic wear sensors.
Kirby Pruitt, product development manager for Akebono, said the new lines are a continuation of the company's commitment "to include hardware in the box of our pad kits, when applicable of course."
Mr. Pruitt said hardware purchased separately is "often pricey. Again, we are including that as a value-add in the box, just like we did last month, and like we did in December, when we reviewed our entire product line and created dozens of new 'with hardware' kits."
Akebono has more than 400 disc pad kits with hardware in the box.
The complete line of Akebono applications are available in the web catalog or directly at showmetheparts.com/akebono.
