GALESBURG, MI— Truck maker Navistar has chosen Eaton as their new supplier of heavy-duty remanufactured transmissions.
“It should definitely help our dealers increase and enhance their aftermarket business. Ultimately our end user customers will benefit the most,” said John Pens, product manager, drivetrain components for Navistar.
Deliveries to Navistar’s roughly 350 North American dealers started July 1 and are mostly of Eaton Flex Reman transmissions.
The Flex Reman transmissions ticketed for Navistar will include a customized design with shift bars in a forward configuration on the housings. Ten part numbers will be available with the design.
“This new agreement with Navistar promises to bring a wealth of benefits to our mutual fleet and independent trucker customers,” said Shane Groner, global account director, Navistar, Eaton commercial vehicle group. “We are continuously enhancing our Flex Reman lineup of transmissions and we’re happy to see that the industry as a whole and Navistar specifically are supporting these improvements in a big way.”
Eaton has made several enhancements to its lineup of FLEX Reman transmissions to better equip truck dealers and truck OEMs to meet the aftermarket needs of their customers.
