Hendrickson Vehicle Suspension Institute sessions planned April 26-29

Updated Mar 16, 2011

Hendrickson has scheduled its next round of technical suspension training for the heavy-duty transportation industry with its eighth edition of the Hendrickson Vehicle Suspension Institute. The HVSI program provides technicians from independent repair facilities, fleets and OE service dealerships as well as parts and service personnel with an orientation for the recommended installation, service, maintenance and repair procedures for newer models of Hendrickson truck and trailer suspensions.

Two sessions will be held from April 26 through April 29 at the Universal Technical Institute in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. These two sessions will be hands-on training covering the Primaax and Haulmaax suspensions, as well as the new Composilite SC lift axle designed for reduced weight and minimized package space and with a flexible tie-rod and dampened lift axle.

Hendrickson regional service managers and technical support managers conduct the training sessions, which are spread over a day and a half. Additional sessions are planned for later in 2011 and will be announced at a later date. “The overwhelming feedback on our HVSI program has been outstanding,” says Edward Powderly, aftermarket business unit manager for Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems. “It is our goal to train as many technicians as possible to keep our customers trucks and trailers on the road and in optimum condition.”
