Dec. 10 – Meritor Automotive is buying Volvo’s heavy truck axle manufacturing operations for approximately $135 million. Meritor will become the primary supplier of heavy-duty axles for Volvo’s global heavy truck operations – a shift in Volvo’s traditional strategy.
Although in the U.S., Volvo offers components built by outside suppliers, in Europe, Volvo has always claimed rear axles are part of the Volvo-only powertrain that the company has touted as a big advantage over the competition.
