ConMet Expands Medium-Duty PreSet Hub Aftermarket Portfolio
VANCOUVER, Wash. – Jan. 23, 2024 – ConMet, a leading global provider of innovative parts and components for commercial trucks and trailers, is excited to announce they have expanded the aftermarket availability of their industry-standard PreSet® hubs. With this expansion of their pre-assembled wheel hub technology, more fleets can benefit from the reduced downtime and service complexity that has made PreSet hubs the preferred choice in the commercial vehicle market.
The aftermarket availability of ConMet PreSet hubs for additional medium-duty applications brings a range of advantages to customers. The advanced technologies included in PreSet hubs, such as pre-adjusted ConMet bearings and premium ConMet wheel seals, ensure enhanced performance and durability.
One of the key benefits of replacing wheel ends with ConMet PreSet hubs is the significant time savings. Compared to the time it would take to rebuild the same hub, replacing it with a PreSet hub can save hours, allowing vehicles to get back on the road faster and minimizing downtime.
Furthermore, fleets with certain medium-duty vehicles can now enjoy the same industry-leading warranty and support that the majority of commercial vehicles already benefit from. ConMet offers a best-in-class warranty and support through their dedicated field sales and service organization. With a three-year/350,000-mile warranty, customers can have complete confidence in the quality and reliability of ConMet PreSet hubs.
“Medium- and heavy-duty customers have enjoyed the reduction in service complexity and time savings PreSet and PreSet Plus® hubs provide,” said Brian Rieger, VP of North America Sales for ConMet. “Due to the increase in customer demand, we’re expanding our line of aftermarket PreSet hubs for medium-duty axle configurations beyond FF front and R drive to include FC front, F drive, L drive, and 190 drive.”
As the complexity of commercial vehicle service continues to grow, ConMet remains committed to delivering innovative products that save operators time and money. The additional offerings for PreSet hubs for medium-duty applications represent a major step forward in minimizing downtime and saving more vehicle operators money.
ConMet is showcasing the additional medium-duty products for the aftermarket PreSet hub lineup during the Heavy-Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) trade show in Grapevine, Texas, which runs January 22-25.
Attendees of HDAW 2024 can see a medium-duty hub on display at ConMet’s booth, #1623.
