Meritor Honored for Support of Veterans

Order Reprints

Meritor Inc. is continuing its long-standing support of wounded veterans by donating a portion of its remanufactured brake shoe sales to Wyakin Foundation, a non-profit which offers resources to wounded vets to help them transition from the military to careers.

Meritor was honored this year with the inaugural Wyakin Legacy Award in recognition of its support for wounded and transitioning veterans, through such programs as Shoes for Soldiers.

Meritor began Shoes for Soldiers in 2015 to support the veterans who have sacrificed so much for the country. Since the launch, Meritor has donated money and other forms of support to Wyakin, which provides leadership development, strategic networking support, academic and career planning and project management experiences designed to fully prepare wounded and injured veterans for fulfilling post-military skills through development of critical skill sets, as well as renewed sense of purpose and self-identity.

Meritor, a leading global supplier of drivetrain, mobility, braking and aftermarket solutions for commercial vehicle and industrial markets, sells a line of brake shoes and brake shoe kits remanufactured to the highest industry standards.
