Eaton announced recently that it has added several new transmission model families to its Authorized Rebuilder program and extended the warranty period for covered transmissions. The program now gives fleets and independent drivers additional options to purchase locally rebuilt transmissions with 100% genuine Eaton content.
With these new model additions, more than 60 transmissions are now available in the Authorized Rebuilder program. All transmissions purchased as part of the Authorized Rebuilder program will now carry 24 months of warranty coverage, which is up from the 18 months of coverage that was included with the initial launch.
“These enhancements are being made as a direct result of the feedback that we have been getting from the marketplace,” says Bill Fouch, Eaton’s NAFTA aftermarket marketing manager. “It illustrates our commitment to making the Authorized Rebuilder program a win-win opportunity for everyone involved.”
The Eaton Authorized Rebuilders are Power Train, Indianapolis IN; TransAxle and TRC, Cinnaminson NJ; and Valley Truck Parts, Grand Rapids MI. Power Train has 12 locations in Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio. TransAxle and TRC have 24 locations on the East Coast, and Valley Truck Parts has five locations in Michigan and eight distribution centers throughout North America.
To be recognized as an Eaton Authorized Rebuilder, the staffs of these three companies were 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 provides the program participants with the warranty coverage and marketing support, including signage and tags for the rebuilt units, promotional materials, and advertising support.
