  • 29-Jul-2011 11:55 EDT

SORL Auto Parts Inc., a global Tier 1 supplier of brake and control systems to the commercial vehicle industry, has entered into a supply agreement with Changsha Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science & Technology Development Co., Ltd., a Chinese manufacturer of construction machinery equipment. SORL will supply braking air processing unit (APU) technology and other components for Zoomlion’s crane trucks. The technology combines the braking APU with air cylinders to create a module, which SORL claims improves the pressure seal integrity and vehicle driving safety. The module also reportedly saves installation space, time, and costs. SORL also is targeting other manufacturers of construction machinery equipment in China as potential users of this braking module.
