Eaton adds Mexican distributor with national coverage

Eaton has named DIMNSA as a distributor to broaden its aftermarket transmission and clutch distribution for customers throughout Mexico. With nearly 500 distributors throughout the country and an extensive sales and support structure, DIMNSA will provide Eaton with opportunities to grow its aftermarket business in the region.

“The value of partnering with DIMNSA is important to our aftermarket strategy,” says Tim Bauer, vice president, Aftermarket, Vehicle Group North America. “With our strong product portfolio and current aftermarket relationships, Eaton sees the relationship with DIMNSA as an opportunity to accelerate the growth of our transmission and clutch aftermarket business.”

DIMNSA’s group began its business in 1966 as a small remanufacturing  company and has grown into one of the largest distributors of aftermarket components in Mexico. Eaton says DIMNSA owns and operates four product distribution centers with a fifth scheduled to open in 2018. With access to nearly 500 distributors and more than 100 authorized installation centers, DIMNSA is able to deliver products to customers rapidly in order to meet the time sensitive demands of the aftermarket business, Eaton says.

As part of its nationwide distribution network, DIMNSA provides customers with technical sales and installation training and support, an online support system for rapid response to issues, marketing and other programs to help drive sales as well as support after the sale.

“DIMNSA is excited to have Eaton as a partner and we are anxious to put our collective program in place to deliver aftermarket transmissions, transmission parts, and clutches to our customers throughout Mexico,” says Alberto Tamez, director general, DIMNSA. “Our distribution network and strong customer relationships, coupled with the programs and support we offer, are the value we will provide to Eaton as we begin working to grow our businesses together.”
