Blue Bird Dealers Now Stock Performance Friction Brake Products

Blue Bird dealers across North America now offer brake products from Performance Friction, thanks to a new agreement finalized between the companies.

Those who operate and maintain Blue Bird school buses can purchase from Blue Bird dealers Performance Friction Carbon Metallic brake pads and zero failure rotors for fleet applications. This also includes light and medium-duty hydraulic pads and rotors, as well as heavy-duty air disc applications for all makes of aftermarket school bus applications.

Don Nichols, vice president of Blue Bird Aftermarket Parts, said the partnership is a win-win for the customers the company serves.

“This alliance will provide Blue Bird customers with top-notch quality and value, which will assist in keeping Blue Bird buses operating with the greatest up-time, at superior performance levels.”

Performance Friction said it is the only brake manufacturer to offer a fleet-specific mileage guarantee on pads and rotors. As a result, it states that national fleets have realized up to a 6:1 cost savings in the first year of service.
