Apr 11, 2001, 01:00 ET from Federal-Mogul Corporation

    SOUTHFIELD, Mich., April 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Reinforcing its position as a

 introduced another class-leading Ferodo(R) original equipment brake lining for
 the commercial vehicle (CV) aftermarket in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

     The Ferodo heavy-duty lining range now provides commercial vehicle
 operators with a choice, where performance and component life are key
 requirements.  The product range, which uses a Ferodo OE friction formulation
 offering up to a 25-percent increase in life, includes half-block linings,
 plus rivet packs.
     The new CV lining is available for popular truck and trailer applications
 and is ideal for low loaders, car transporters and all other small drum
 applications where high temperatures are the norm.
     Benefits to operators are numerous -- increased life at high bulk
 temperatures, noise/judder resistance and improved brake balance.
     The new products are ideal for use on older trailers employing drum brakes
 -- drawn by tractor units with disc brakes -- which can result in rapid brake
 wear to the trailer linings.
     Steve Brooks, CV business manager for Federal-Mogul Aftermarket U.K. Ltd,
 said: "This latest breakthrough in CV friction technology reinforces our
 commitment to provide the best brands in the business.  Last year we
 introduced the Ferodo Approved Re-line Centre offering, which sets industry
 standards in terms of brake re-lining.  Our latest introduction ensures our
 distributors are unrivaled in terms of the safety standards and assurances
 that they can offer their customers."
     The new Ferodo product range currently includes 17 product variations.
 Federal-Mogul plans to extend the range during the coming year.
     Federal-Mogul's U.K. aftermarket operation, based in Bradford, distributes
 to automotive service and replacement markets in the U.K. and Ireland.  The
 company's product portfolio includes some of the world's leading component
 brand names such as Ferodo(R), Champion(R), AE(R), Payen(R), Moog(R) and
 Duron(R).
