Roadlink is pushing its campaign for remanufactured brake shoes, as it continues its emphasis on the benefits of remanufactured brake shoe linings, reminding the industry how it can help reduce the countless tonnes of landfill waste accumulated per year. Commercial vehicle brake specialist Roadlink International has long been a fervent believer in the remanufacturing process, reflected in the company’s ongoing investment in reman and its commitment to helping reduce the company’s carbon footprint. Roadlink remanufacturing promotes quality whilst also offering a competitively priced, environmentally friendly alternative.
Brake shoe relining is currently enjoying a buoyant period, according to commercial vehicle brake specialist Roadlink International.
