Betts Spring Inks Long-Term Agreement with DTNA

Fresno, CA (April 18, 2011) Betts Spring Company has finalized a three-year renewable long-term agreement with Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) to supply Betts and Life-Time Fenders branded spray suppression products and other proprietary components manufactured to DTNA specifications.

“Betts has been a supplier to Freightliner for over seventy (70) years and we value this relationship tremendously” commented Mike Betts, President of Betts Spring, “We appreciate that with this new long-term agreement Daimler Trucks North America expresses continued confidence in our ability to supply products and services that meet DTNA’s strict quality and innovation standards.”

DTNA’s Procurement Manager Dean Veeder noted “We appreciate the opportunity to partner with suppliers like Betts that accept the challenge of delivering sustained value in our rapidly evolving marketplace.  Betts is the recognized brand in spray suppression applications and thus fits well with DTNA’s genuine brand philosophy.”

Betts Spring is the recognized industry leader in spray suppression system components, patenting the first mud flap hanger more than fifty (50) years ago.  Betts hangers are designed to meet the rigorous demands of Class 8 operators with unparalleled attention to innovation and quality.  Mud flap hangers supplied to Freightliner under this new agreement are manufactured at the company’s campus in Fresno, CA.  Life-Time Fenders, acquired by Betts Spring in 2007 and located in Canfield, OH, manufactures a broad range of metal and poly fenders durable and strong enough to last as long as the truck on which they are installed.  They carry a life-time warranty against cracking and rusting.
