Hadley Turns a Technical Issue into Significant Savings
A major truck OEM came to Hadley with a problem to solve: their air horns (from a competitor) were not producing the loud, robust sound that drivers wanted and expected.
From a site visit, a Hadley engineer noticed that the mounting of the horn was creating sound blockage and recommended a simple move to a different mounting location. Not only did this fix the sound problem, but the OEM was able to eliminate and reduce a large number of brackets, fittings and tubing, and also improve installation (pack) time.
The net result was a savings of $500,000 for this OEM for their fleet—a benefit which was not expected, but surely appreciated!
A classic example of Hadley ingenuity.
