Premium Features and Performance, Trusted Brand and Mid-Grade Price Helping Shops Increase Sales in Competitive Marketplace


Las Vegas, NV, Nov. 1, 2011 – Tenneco Inc.’s (NYSE: TEN) comprehensive line of Monroe Brakes® replacement brake shoes for drum and parking brake applications has been developed to meet the changing demands facing today’s replacement parts distributors and service providers. Each Monroe brake shoe offers premium-level design features and performance yet is available at an attractive, mid-grade price to help professionals make more money while completing high quality brake repairs.


“The brake category is far too important to today’s WDs and automotive service providers to rely on anything less than a trusted brand and truly premium-grade technology,” said Tom Connelly, channel manager, brakes, Tenneco. “That’s why the Monroe Brakes product line is such a great choice – we offer technologies that help ensure superior performance, yet our line also helps the customer maintain the profitability they deserve.”


The Monroe Brakes line of competitively priced premium-grade brake shoes includes 295 SKUs covering a vast majority of domestic and foreign nameplate automotive applications, with 14 additional SKUs coming in 2012.


Repair providers relying on the Monroe Brakes shoe line also have the benefit of matching rear-brake technology and performance to the ultra-premium characteristics of Tenneco’s popular Monroe Ceramics® genuine ceramic formula or Monroe Dynamics® semi-metallic brake pads on the front of the vehicle.


“Brake service providers have told us they would prefer to do business with one high quality, full-line supplier,” Connelly said. “As the Total SolutionTM in brakes, the Monroe Brakes brand is uniquely qualified to fill that role.”
