Raydan Manufacturing recently announced that it has completed a modification contract for tandem axle spring conversions for Inland Kenworth of Surrey, B.C. Over the past year, Raydan has completed a substantial number of tandem steer spring and air conversions for the Lehigh Cement Co. Several tandem/tandem units equipped with Raydan’s factory rear Air Link also have been received for front air conversions.
Raydan Manufacturing develops and produces specialized suspension and coupling systems for trucks, trailers and heavy equipment, as well as a chassis modifications center and a military service facility. Lehigh Cement and its related companies have become leading suppliers of cements and construction materials in the United States and Canada; annual production places them among the top concrete producers in North America.
“Kenworth supplies factory tandem spring 72-inch configurations,” says Ray English, president and chief executive officer of Edmonton, Alberta-based Raydan. “To meet British Columbia Department of Transportation inter-axle regulations, Inland Kenworth required a 52-inch and 54-inch equalizing spring suspension for Lehigh’s fleet of T800B mixers. Raydan was granted the modification contract because we specialize in custom engineering and manufacturing.”
