BLOOMFIELD, CT – Jacobs Vehicle Systems®, the world’s leading manufacturer of diesel and natural gas engine retarding systems and valve actuation mechanisms, announces the addition of Jactenn, Inc. as a new distributor servicing the USA, Canada, and Latin America.          

As of May 1, 2016, Jactenn, Inc. became an independent stocking distributor of Genuine Jacobs’ parts.  Jactenn will be an additional source of Jacobs’ Caterpillar and Mack housings, tune up kits, and brake model-specific service parts along with Jacobs’ common components.  With Jactenn, customers will have an online source to order Genuine Jacobs’ parts including overnight delivery of in-stock parts.
