Roadlink implores fleets to use remanufactured brake shoes

Roadlink is pushing the industry to recognise remanufactured brake shoe linings, which it says are cost effective and can help reduce landfill.

Remanufacturing in the UK currently contributes approximately £4.3bn to the UK economy, Roadlink says, with this figure expected to grow dramatically thanks to further investment. It is not only good for the environment through the reduction of CO2 emissions but cuts down on raw material and energy consumption.

Old brake shoe linings are further reprocessed for use within the construction industry.

Keith Sedgley, Roadlink joint managing director, said: “Remanufacturing is a vitally important, growing aspect of our industry, not only does it help drive energy conservation and the reduction of raw materials usage, but also the elimination of landfill space.

“Our brake shoe relining facility is currently enjoying a buoyant period and so we’re changing people’s attitudes through our commitment to quality and performance.”

Roadlink’s production process is the first in the UK to be ‘Brake Assured’, which provides a guarantee of quality and safety to the same standards of OE linings and rivets.

Roadlink’s brake shoe reline operation is supported by ISO9001 approved production and ISO14001 environmental accreditation, with every shoe platform checked and linished.

Having established its position over many years in the CV brake shoe market, Roadlink has one of the largest ranges in Europe covering more than 200 references. Brake shoes come complete with OE brake linings to suit all types of truck, trailer and PCV applications.
