“I’m really excited about today’s new part announcement, it’s a continuation of our commitment to include hardware in the box of our pad kits, when applicable of course” stated Kirby Pruitt, Product Development Manager, Akebono.  “Hardware purchased separately is often pricey, again we are including that as a value-add in the box, just like we did last month, and like we did in December, when we reviewed our entire product line and created dozens of new ‘with hardware’ kits.  Today we have over 400 disc pad kits with hardware in the box, we are very proud of that fact”
