Steering safely

JOST Australia has added TRIDEC specialised steering and suspension systems to its product portfolio.

As of 1 April 2021, JOST Australia adds TRIDEC product to its product portfolio and will provide the highest level of service and support for the customers.

TRIDEC has been part of JOST World since 2008 and employs around 200 people at its European locations in the Netherlands and Portugal. It is a market leader in the engineering, design, and manufacture of mechanical, hydraulic and electronically controlled steering and suspension systems for trailers. Currently more than 50,000 TRIDEC systems are in use by fleets around the world.

JOST Australia will now commence sales distribution and full support/warranty for the full TRIDEC range of steering and suspension systems.

JOST Australia takes over the responsibility for TRIDEC from BPW Transpec and will provide the highest level of service and support to all existing and future customers. The company’s nationwide network and technical expertise will ensure a smooth transition for customers currently using this technology in their equipment builds.

JOST Australia Managing Director, James Mackie, is pleased with this development.

“We’re looking forward to meeting all current users and trailer builders of the TRIDEC range over the coming months,” he says. “And, of course, we thank BPW Transpec for their efforts in promoting and supporting the TRIDEC brand in the past.”
