Westrans joins CVSN

CVSN LogoWestrans is pleased to announce that the company has joined the Commercial Vehicle Solutions Network (CVSN), an association of Canadian and American independent parts and service aftermarket distributors serving the transportation industry.

In an ever-evolving industry, it’s critical for independent distributors such as Westrans to stay on top of changes in technology, the business landscape, and government regulations. As a member, Westrans has access to CVSN training and education, business growth opportunities, and awareness of legislative issues. One of the current legislative issues affecting the heavy duty vehicle aftermarket is the Right to Repair agreement, which seeks to allow independent distributors and service providers the same access to vehicle information as the original equipment manufacturer, similar to legislation that already exists in the automotive industry.

Westrans looks forward to being a part of CVSN’s strong membership base, and leveraging new industry knowledge and connections to better serve our customers.

KenTool Socket Wrench SAE 35775Ken-Tool has a new, patented 8-in-1 Wrench, available with SAE or metric meaurements.  It’s a compact 7.5 inches in length, with a slide-twist-slide design that makes it easy to change wrench sizes. The “stud-through” feature allows studs and bolts to pass through the opening, making for easier use in tight spaces. The metric version has sizes 10 mm., 11 mm., 12 mm., 13 mm., 14 mm., 15 mm., 16 mm., and 17 mm. The SAE version has sizes 5/16”, 3/8”, 7/16”, 1/2”, 9/16”, 5/8”, 11/16” and 3/4”.

Part numbers: SAE 35775, Metric 35776

 

Conmet aftermarket hub top verticalWheel-end repairs can be time-consuming, costly, and hold the potential for errors, as the mechanic replaces the bearing cup, bearing cone, and the wheel seal, and then manually adjusts the bearing. But with a ConMet PreSet hub assembly, the mechanic simply slides the pre-assembled hub onto the spindle, torques the retaining nut, and adds lubricant. Repairs are faster, easier, more cost-efficient, and have a reduced potential for errors. ConMet PreSet hub assemblies are OEM-approved and come with a full factory warranty. Westrans has PreSet hub assemblies available for front, drive, and trailer axles, as well as conventional assemblies.

Have you upgraded your headlamps to LED yet? The new Grote 4” x 6” LED headlamps appear brighter to the human eye than halogens or HIDs, and closer to the colour of natural sunlight. And like all LEDs, they last longer, and draw less power. The headlamps are available in high beam and low beam models.

Part numbers: Low beam 94421-5, high beam 94411-5
