Daimler Awards Rassini for Suspension, Brakes Used on Cascadia Trucks

Rassini, a Mexican industrial company engaged in the design and manufacturing of suspension and brake components, has been recognized by Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA), for quality, delivery, technology and cost performance of its products.

Daimler presented Rassini with its 2014 Masters of Quality Award — the highest award given to its suppliers. Rassini provides front taper leaf springs and rear suspension airlink “Hockey Stick” components used on Freightliner Cascadia vehicles. Rassini’s outstanding performance record enabled the company to achieve the award in its first year supplying the truck maker, a rare feat due to DTNA’s stringent quality standards.

“It’s an honor to receive this prestigious award from a partner who’s so well-respected in our industry,” said Eugenio Madero, president of Rassini S.A.B. de C.V. “This is a direct reflection of the hard work and talent that our team brings every day, and it shows our discipline and continued dedication in advancing both product and process, while maintaining a competitive cost structure to support our customers”

Rassini is among the world’s largest producers of suspension components for light commercial vehicles, and recently expanded its suspension offerings to include leaf springs for the North American Heavy Commercial Truck market. Previously only serving South America’s heavy truck industry, Rassini anticipates doubling its North American market share within the segment by 2018.

Suspension products include leaf springs (parabolic and multi-leaf) for light and commercial trucks, coil springs and bushings. The brakes business manufactures rotors, drums, brake assemblies, clutch plates and motor balancers.
