    febi bilstein wins “CV supplier of the year” award from leading aftermarket buying group in the UK

    febi bilstein the world-renowned manufacturer and supplier has stood for product and service innovation, whose high standard of quality is consistently reflected in its own manufacture of precision parts. A family run company up to the present day, febi bilstein has gone from regional craft business to a globally represented market leader in the automotive aftermarket over the course of 170 years.

    febi bilstein today announced it is the recipient of the UAN CV Supplier of the Year award. The aftermarket components supplier successfully fought off stiff competition from rival suppliers to win the UAN CV Supplier of the Year for the first time. This award recognises high quality parts, expert technical support and service excellence across the UAN network. “We are delighted to name febi as the UAN CV Supplier of the year” said Rachel Dickinson, UAN Joint Managing Director.

    The award was presented by UAN CV Director Rod Edwards to the truck team at febi UK. “febi is proud to be honoured with this award, as we are passionate about our parts, the quality and maximising customer satisfaction,” said Jon Richards febi bilstein’s UK Truck Manager. “Our OE Matching product range combined with excellent technical knowledge and customer service differentiates febi in the aftermarket thus providing the aftermarket with a quality, value for money alternative to OEM. This award shows that our commitment to our customers and the moto “the right part every time” is a winning combination for febi.

    Operating independently, the Truck Division from febi bilstein offers perfectly fitting wear parts for all established brands and models of truck, trailer, semi-trailer and bus. The portfolio ranges from steering, engine, suspension and wheel mounting technology to vehicle electrics and pneumatics. 47 highly-qualified employees work solely for this division, making sure every wear part meets the specific requirements for quality, resilience, installation safety and efficiency.

    With more than 8,000 replacement parts, the Truck Division boasts a broad spectrum of products that keeps on growing. New product lines are to be introduced (among them, air conditioning, cabin components and turbochargers), while the core competence in the area of steering and chassis is constantly expanding.

    The webbing dimension of the wheel types specified is too small, because of which the wheel nuts project above the rims. The necessary pre-tension is therefore not generated and the wheel nuts could get detached.

    If febi 26587 or febi 46663 are fitted, it must be done exclusively with compatible original rims or original accessory rims of the vehicle manufacturer.

    If pure accessory rims are involved, the webbing dimension/mounting dimension must be checked without fail. It should be at least 13.5 mm. The wheel nut (sub-head size 12.5 mm +0.2 – 0.7) must not project from the rim.
