Hendrickson Acquires Brunner Inc.

Brunner is a privately owned business that manufactures components for commercial vehicles, buses and trailers.

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.

Brunner’s primary product lines include brake shoes and s-cams. These products complement Hendrickson’s primary business of designing and manufacturing suspension systems for the medium- and heavy-duty truck and trailer markets, the company added.

Hendrickson said the Brunner product brand will be kept and used going forward. Brunner will operate as a division of Hendrickson Brake and Wheel End and its approximately 325 employees will become employees of Hendrickson.

“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. Hendrickson is a 105-year-old company based in Woodridge, Illinois.

HDA Truck Pride announced it enhanced its footprint in Idaho with the addition of Diesel Depot, a family-owned business led by Wally Klassen and his three sons.

Their story began in Aberdeen, Idaho, in 2000 with the renovation of a vacant car dealership to accommodate trucks. By 2007, they had outgrown the building. The brothers took over the business and built a new state-of-the-art facility. Their remarkable growth created the need, yet again, for more room and, by 2020, they broke ground on an expansion project, nearly doubling the size of their facility, HDA Truck Pride said.
