Kentucky congressman visits Bendix plant

By Jack Roberts on

Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake recently hosted U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie, R-Ky., at its foundation brake production facility in Bowling Green, Ky. Guthrie toured the facility and learned more about its growth initiatives and its increasing role in helping the commercial vehicle industry meet new federal reduced stopping distance safety standards.

A joint venture between Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems and Dana Commercial Vehicle Products, BSFB produces a full lineup of Bendix foundation brake solutions – including foundation drum brakes, air disc brakes, automatic slack adjuster, and combination spring brakes – and makes them available under the Bendix brand name.

“I was pleased to visit BSFB in Bowling Green earlier this month,” Guthrie said. “They have a tremendous facility that I enjoyed touring. As someone with a background in manufacturing, I am focused on jobs and the economy, and I appreciate the fact that BSFB shares those concerns and has committed quality jobs to the South Central Kentucky region.”
