TRW Proequip announces launch plans for CV Show 2012 24 January 2012

TRW Automotive Aftermarket is to major on the 'no compromises on safety' message for its TRW Proequip heavy commercial vehicle programme at the 2012 CV show.

TRW Proequip, one of the fastest-growing HCV brands in Europe, will use its stand as a platform to showcase the full 'Corner Module' product portfolio of: steering and suspension parts, now totalling more than 1,200 and covering brake pads, shock absorbers and steering gears.

"Since the rebrand in 2008, TRW Proequip has become a true force to be reckoned with in the European HCV arena," states James O'Gara, UK sales and marketing director, TRW Proequip.

"With year-on-year growth of 40%, we are excited about the future. We have some serious developments planned for the next few years, which will take us further towards our goal of becoming the global leader for HCV parts," he adds.

On display will be XCAP, TRW's own design of tie rod end, launched two years ago to critical acclaim, and encompassing the latest in steering innovation.

Developed at TRW's facility in Dusseldorf, Germany, XCAP is claimed to be smaller, stronger and more durable than its predecessor, and offers enhanced steering comfort due to reduced torque. The business credits the OE contracts won for XCAP, including the new Mercedes Actros, for the brand hitting its 2011 sales targets early.
