Hendrickson Announces HVSI Suspension Training Program
Held in November in Bangor, ME

WOODRIDGE, IL.  – Hendrickson Vehicle Suspension Institute (HVSI) scheduled its next session of hands-on technical suspension training for the heavy-duty transportation industry.

Two separate sessions will be held from November 18 through November 20 in Bangor, ME at Eastern Maine Community College (EMCC). Each session includes classroom and hands-on training which is conducted by Hendrickson’s regional field service managers and topics include both truck and trailer suspension systems. The truck session will include HAULMAAX, PRIMAAX EX, and front steer axles, and the trailer session will include VANTRAAX, trailer axle wheel-ends and brakes, and Hendrickson’s tire inflation system, TIREMAAX PRO.

The HVSI program provides technicians as well as parts and service personnel with a basic orientation and hands-on experience for the recommended installation, service, maintenance, and repair procedures for all Hendrickson suspension systems.

Hundreds of technicians from independent repair facilities, fleets, OE service dealerships and parts distributors have participated in the past sessions.
“HVSI has proven to be a popular and effective hands-on and classroom technical training program.  Participants get to interact with our trainers and obtain the ability to experience real time repair procedures. We want our end users, technicians and parts specialist to have a great experience learning how to maintain our Hendrickson suspension systems.  HVSI enables that experience.” said David McCleave, marketing & aftermarket director for Hendrickson Truck Commercial Vehicle Systems.
