“Our web catalog has a full-function application look-up, as well as direct or wildcard part number and cross reference searches making it easier than ever to find the right parts. The platform is designed for minimal data usage, meaning fast page loads and quick return of results,” he says.

The web catalog can be accessed from at website www.akebonobrakes.com or directly at: www.partcat.com/akebono.
