Hendrickson has acquired Brunner International Inc. based in Medina, New York and Brunner Manufacturing and Sales LTD. based in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. Brunner is a privately owned business that manufactures components for the commercial vehicle, bus and trailer markets, Hendrickson said.

“We are excited about this acquisition, as it will provide a platform for Hendrickson to expand our core competency in braking and provide additional components that will enhance our existing product portfolio. We look forward to working with our new associates and strengthening our business serving the Commercial Truck and Trailer industry,” said Matt Joy, president and CEO of Hendrickson.

Hendrickson, a Boler company, is a leading global manufacturer and supplier of medium- and heavy-duty mechanical, elastomeric and air suspensions; integrated and non-integrated axle and brakes systems; tire pressure control systems; auxiliary lift axle systems; parabolic and multi-leaf springs; stabilizers; bumper; and components to the global commercial transportation industry.
