Innovative Suspension System Provides Smoother Ride for Buses
After getting its start about 25 years ago in large off-highway, 200-ton capacity mining trucks, LiquidSpring introduced its multiple-patented Compressible Liquid Adaptive Suspension System (CLASS®) to the bus and ambulance industries in 2012. During that time, the company’s market share in the ambulance industry, where an upgraded air spring technology system was already being used, grew from 0% in 2012 to about 95% today.
On the bus side, LiquidSpring initially made inroads in a sector of the industry where a comfortable ride was of the utmost importance.
“On the commercial side, we initially saw some success with operators that were working with retirement homes, who had passengers using the bus every day and could notice the smoother ride on buses that had the system,” says Richard Meyer, president for LiquidSpring Technologies Inc., the parent company of LiquidSpring.
