Anderson Brothers has a warehouse and shop facility of more than 62,000 sq. ft. in Portland, Ore. and employs 45 people.
Eaton’s Authorized Rebuilder Program, launched last year, gives fleets and independent drivers a new option to purchase locally rebuilt transmissions with 100 percent genuine Eaton components that meet all of Eaton’s re-use and rebuild requirements. This new option provides customers with a higher level of confidence and after-the-sale support than other rebuilds, Eaton says.
“The management team at Anderson has demonstrated for many years a sincere commitment to customer satisfaction and always delivering quality rebuilt transmissions,” says Bill Fouch, Eaton’s NAFTA aftermarket marketing manager. “We are looking forward to many years of success with this newest addition to our Authorized Rebuilder initiative.”
“Anderson Brothers has been a leader in providing exceptionally high quality rebuilt products in the Northwest for nearly 75 years,” adds Sarah Anderson, vice president for Anderson Brothers. “We are looking forward to this new relationship with Eaton and being included in the Authorized Rebuilder Program is another step in our evolution.”
Additional Eaton Authorized Rebuilders are Power Train, Indianapolis, Ind.; TransAxle, Cinnaminson, N.J.; and Valley Truck Parts, Grand Rapids, Mich.
To be recognized as an Eaton Authorized Rebuilder, each of the rebuilders was required to complete Eaton’s technical and sales training, to meet Eaton’s re-use and rebuild criteria, and must use 100 percent genuine Eaton content for all of the transmissions rebuilt as part of the program, the company says.
Eaton also provides the program participants with enhanced warranty coverage, and marketing support, including signage and tags for the rebuilt units, promotional materials, and advertising support.
