Service, parts and rental specialist HB Commercial has opened a remanufactured caliper and brake shoe facility at its parts supply centre in Bury St Edmunds.

The firm is based in Ipswich and operates workshops and support hubs in the port towns of Harwich and Felixstowe. It claims the new facility will cut costs by reducing its reliance on imported parts, improve reliability and speed up delivery. 

“As friction specialists, we have been re-lining brake shoes since the 1980s,” said operations director Oliver Brunt, “so the addition of the new facility is a natural fit. Our customers are now benefiting from the low cost, wide choice and fast supply, which the new service brings.”

“Being able to produce 90% of the market requirement on a same-day basis enables us to quickly respond to a wide range of parts requirements at an affordable rate. Furthermore, operators can reduce running costs, minimise down-time and, by reusing the components, make a positive contribution to the environment.”
