Wagner® Brake Extends Category Leadership With Aggressive Expansion of Rotor, Drum and Hydraulic Coverage
Brand Expands Coverage by Nearly 160 Million Vehicles Registered in North America
Southfield, Mich., June 16, 2016… Wagner®, the global leader in braking innovation, has expanded its application coverage advantage on 464 brake rotor, drum and hydraulic part numbers for a combined total of nearly 160 million registered vehicles. A brand of global original equipment (OE) and aftermarket brake manufacturer Federal-Mogul Motorparts, Wagner is a trusted, single source of complete brake service solutions for today’s North American, Asian and European vehicles. Federal-Mogul Motorparts is a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML).
Enhanced rotor coverage is attributed to 84 premium Wagner E-Shield™ brake rotors covering more than 41 million vehicles in operation (VIO). Wagner E-Shield™ protective coating technology prevents unsightly corrosion and inhibits the rotor from corroding to the hub providing easier removal of the rotor for service. With these part numbers, exclusive Wagner E-Shield premium rotors represent 98 percent of the brand’s rotor sales.
The coverage expansion includes enhancements to 324 Wagner brake hydraulic part numbers with combined coverage of more than 90 million registered vehicles. These part numbers include 179 hydraulic hose part numbers, 100 master cylinders and dozens of disc brake hardware kits, clutch master and slave cylinders, parking brake shoes and cables, and drum brake wheel cylinders. The company also expanded its industry-leading line of Wagner brake pads to an additional 4.2 million registered, late-model vehicles.
