Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton has launched a new Eaton Authorized Rebuilder program that will give three large independent aftermarket providers an opportunity to rebuild and sell a differentiated choice for Eaton’s popular lineup of heavy-duty transmissions.
The new initiative will also give fleets and independent drivers a new option to purchase locally rebuilt transmissions with 100% genuine Eaton components that meet all of Eaton’s re-use and rebuild requirements. This new option can provide customers with a higher level of confidence and after-the-sale support than other rebuilds.
The new Eaton Authorized Rebuilders are Power Train, Indianapolis, Ind.; TransAxle, Cinnaminson, N.J.; and Valley Truck Parts, Grand Rapids, Mich. Power Train has 12 locations in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. TransAxle has 23 locations on the east coast, and Valley Truck Parts has five locations in Michigan and five distribution centers throughout North America.
To be recognized as an Eaton Authorized Rebuilder, staff at the three locations will be required to take Eaton’s technical and sales training, meet Eaton’s re-use and rebuild criteria, and must use 100% genuine Eaton content for all of the transmissions rebuilt as part of the program.
Eaton will provide the program participants with enhanced warranty coverage, and marketing support, including signage and tags for the rebuilt units, promotional materials, and advertising support.
