Phillips Industries, a leading provider of heavy-duty electrical and air brake components, has been chosen by Daimler AG to provide electrical/trailer cables for their Mercedes-Benz trucks in Europe.

Phillips, known for their innovation and problem-solving processes, was the first cable manufacturer to develop the coiled assembly in the US, which has now become the industry standard. Their coiled electrical cables have excellent recoil memory, are chemical and abrasion resistant and are designed to perform in varied temperatures. Because Phillips products are built to the highest quality standard, they are currently specified on 100% of class 8 trucks built in the U.S.

“Daimler has long contributed to Phillips Industries‘ success in the commercial vehicle market,” stated Ron Alvarez, director – North America and global OEM/OES sales. “We are honoured and excited to have recently been selected as their supplier in the European market as well.”
