ContiTech air spring systems is focusing its presence at the Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) in Las Vegas on its service, quality and product designs for the air spring replacement market.

“For us, the Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week is one of the most important events worldwide and is the ideal meeting place for in-depth discussions with our customers in the NAFTA region,” said Alexander Papadimitriou, head of the ContiTech Air Spring Systems segment.

According to the company, ContiTech Air Spring Systems is aiming to continue its successful growth in the NAFTA region with high standards for quality and short delivery times for its air springs. After 40 years in the USA, ContiTech has over 800 designs in its aftermarket product range for the NAFTA market.

“We cover nearly every use in the North American replacement market,” said John Hilkirk, product manager for ContiTech Air Spring Systems Aftermarket in the NAFTA region. “Customers benefit from the quick turnaround that we ensure as our production facility is located in the NAFTA region. This has a considerable advantage, as each customer location in the NAFTA region can be reached within just a few days.”

Customers in the replacement market are benefiting from the development expertise that ContiTech Air Spring Systems has built up in close collaboration with vehicle manufacturers and is bringing new product solutions to the industry. “Our versatile products provide attractive solutions,” said Hilkirk, “and their optimal price/performance ratio impresses every market segment.”
