Kenosha to distribute Takler safety equipment

July 10, 2024
New agreement to deliver expanded access to side guards, ingress/egrees solutions, and other essential commercial vehicle safety products to North America

Kenosha Truck Parts (KTP), formerly Kenosha Suspension Specialists, recently enhanced its product distribution and offerings in North America through a new distribution agreement with equipment supplier Takler USA.

This collaboration addresses the critical industry needs for the distribution of essential safety equipment such as side guards for trucks, along with a wide range of ingress and egress solutions, KTP reported.

“Until now, Takler has had limited distribution in the United States,” Jerimiah Gilmore, KTP customer service manager, said in a news release. “This collaboration is not just about growth for Kenosha but also about supporting a new supplier in the North American market. It expands our brand beyond just suspensions, offering growth opportunities for our customers and contributing to enhanced safety standards in the industry.”

With the introduction of mandatory requirements for truck side guards in major cities like New York and Chicago, KTP will take on the crucial role of distributing Takler’s high-quality side guards. These products are essential for protecting fuel tanks and reducing the risk of side impacts, thereby enhancing safety standards.

The partnership comes at a pivotal time when the industry faces increasing insurance and liability challenges, particularly related to ingress and egress injuries, which are the No. 1 source of insurance claims in the sector, KTP said. By incorporating Takler’s advanced solutions into its portfolio, KTP is poised to provide comprehensive safety solutions to fleets and dealers, helping to reducing the risk of falls and related incidents.

A New chapter for Kenosha

The recent rebranding from Kenosha Suspension to Kenosha Truck Parts underscores the company’s commitment to broadening its product and service offerings beyond suspensions, KTP maintained. The company has added well-known brands to its product lineup, including ContiTech, Gabriel, Westport, and Link Mfg. It now also offers air springs, suspension controls, shock absorbers, steering components, tire pressure monitoring systems, and loading ramps.

This strategic move allows Kenosha Truck Parts to cater to a more extensive range of customer needs. The company will continue to serve its entire North American customer base with same-day shipping for in-stock items, bolstering its position as an up-and-coming distributor in the truck parts industry.
