Jan. 23, 2013 - PRLog -- Las Vegas, Nev. - In an announcement today at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week (HDAW) '13 in Las Vegas,  leaders from Betts Company announced BettsHD as the company's new operating division for spray suppression and fender products.  

BettsHD combines the resources of Betts and Life-Time Fenders into one reliable source for safety-related products focused on heavy duty tractor/trailer applications. Products include mud flap hangers; conspicuity solutions; quarter, poly and metal fenders; bracket kits and accessories; application solutions; and custom design/manufacturing. Heavy duty tractor/trailer components previously branded or offered distinctly by Betts and Life-Time Fenders will be branded as BettsHD.

Under the leadership of Bill Betts, vice president, Betts Company, the newly formed business unit will offer a broad line of products, including continuously enhanced bundles for the heavy duty aftermarket.

"With our strong leadership in spray suppression and fender products, we are pleased to unite these legacy brands," said Betts. "We believe the formation of BettsHD provides strong supply chain value through expanded, unified marketing, extended customer support and streamlined business processes designed for productive business. The BettsHD platform is uniquely positioned for complementary product extensions focused on safety-related products."

BettsHD has been a leader in spray-suppression products for nearly 60 years and holds numerous patents, including the first patent granted on spray suppression mud flap hangers in 1954. Life-Time Fenders, acquired in 2007, substantially increased Betts’ solution capabilities with its well respected line of quarter, single axle and tandem fenders for on- and off- highway applications.  BettsHD will continue to operate from strategically located manufacturing facilities in California and Ohio.
