Dexter Extends Warranty on Sprung and Torflex Axles

Mon Aug 29, 2016

Dexter announced, effective Sept. 1, it will be extending its warranty program for all customers, according to a press release.

Changes include increasing the sprung axle warranty to 5 years, increasing the Torflex axle warranty to 10 years, adding a lifetime weld warranty to all axles, and increasing the Dexter Genuine Replacement Parts warranty to a 5-year warranty.

“It’s critical for us,” Bryan Thursby, VP of Sales and Marketing, says. “Quality can’t be faked, and we plan to hold on to our earned reputation as a trusted, reliable partner by continuing to provide quality products that meet or exceed our customer’s expectations.”

New, extended warranties on Dexter axles give trailer and RV manufacturers and dealers a big sales advantage, the company says.

“This warranty extension is not only proof we stand behind our products but further demonstrates our commitment to bring innovation and value to our customers,” Thursby says.
