ELYRIA, Ohio – March 15, 2017 – Mid-America Trucking Show attendees can once
again turn to the popular Tech Talk Series from Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems LLC to
boost their knowledge in topics ranging from air dryer performance to brake maintenance. New

Series features Bendix product and service experts offering how-to demonstrations, interactive
question-and-answer sessions, and discussions of the issues and technologies shaping the
commercial vehicle industry.

The 15-minute Tech Talks, open to all show attendees, begin at 11 a.m., Thursday,

“With the industry constantly changing, from technologies to regulations, the ‘must see’
Bendix Tech Talks offer a unique forum for people throughout the trucking business – drivers
and fleet operators, OEs and maintenance technicians – to discuss the topics that matter most
to them,” said Barbara Gould, Bendix director of communications. “In the short space of 15
minutes, tops, trucking professionals come away from each session with new insights and
practical knowledge gained straight from the experts. Our friends in the industry can take what
they learn and apply it directly to their job – whether it be in a maintenance bay, over a balance
sheet, or on the road.”
