Hendrickson Commercial Vehicle Systems Europe announced today that it was one of three key vendors at Ford Trucks Press Event in Antalya, Turkey, where Ford Trucks unveiled its latest innovations in the heavy commercial vehicle sector. Ford Trucks’ new lineup was introduced to invited press members, Ford Trucks importers, biggest customers, sales and dealer representatives, and esteemed suppliers, all gathered between the 13th and 17th of November in Antalya. 

“We appreciate the collaboration with Ford Trucks in revolutionizing the market for construction trucks with the brake through ULTIMAAX Heavy-Duty Elastomer Suspension,” states Christian Imre, Director of Sales & Marketing at Hendrickson Europe. 

The marriage of Ford Trucks and ULTIMAAX within the 8×4 mixer chassis for the ready-mixed concrete industry, nestled within the Ford Trucks construction series, heralds a new era of advantages. The suspension system, a testament to Hendrickson's ingenuity, offers unparalleled benefits in terms of lightness, superior handling, safety, extended maintenance intervals, and a reduced life cycle costs due to a system design without traditional leaf springs, a number of features that position Ford Trucks at the pinnacle of the heavy-duty vehicle landscape.

Serkan Saraymine, Turkey Key Account Manager at Hendrickson Europe, expressed the significance of the ULTIMAAX system, stating, "With ULTIMAAX, we at Hendrickson have raised the bar for durability." He highlighted its remarkable weight efficiency, being up to 250 kg lighter than comparable mechanical suspensions, making it the ultimate choice for heavy-duty applications. The enduring collaboration between Hendrickson and Ford Trucks has borne fruit in the form of an innovative suspension solution that adds an extra layer of sophistication to Ford Trucks’ already illustrious product lineup.

ULTIMAAX, boasting a load capacity of 26t and approved for construction and heavy load applications, stands as a beacon of engineering excellence.
