Meritor Inc. has announced its authorized drive axle carrier rebuilders in Canada are listed on TruckDown.com’s locator map to help end-users with a breakdown quickly identify the nearest dealer or wholesale distributor stocking the replacement parts, according to an announcement.
Capital Gear, Coast Powertrain Ltd., ULT Powertrain and The Gear Centre and their combined 24 locations across Canada are the first in a network of companies in Meritor’s North America Authorized Rebuilder Program that rebuild Meritor 145, 14X and 160 products. TruckDown.com’s service locator resources are available to all online and TruckDown app users. TruckDown’s customized vendor network setup, routing and automated approval solutions are available to more than 36,000 of its qualified suppliers and over 23,000 registered fleet customers.
“Finding a remanufactured carrier is important, but it’s also critical to find the right product rebuilt with 100 percent Meritor genuine content and coast-to-coast shipment within 24 hours,” says Terry Livingston, senior director, specialty sales for Meritor. “Directing fleets and independent owners to authorized rebuilders through TruckDown’s highly recognized resources further bolsters Meritor’s commitment to increasing speed of service and ease of doing business.”
In the United States, TruckDown.com and the TruckDown app have directed more than 3,000 service calls to Meritor Service Points. TruckDown looks forward to working with Meritor Authorized Rebuilders to deliver similar results, according to Bob Toews, CEO of TruckDown.com.
“TruckDown’s two decades of success in helping fleets and owner-operators identify the qualified service they need to get their vehicles back on the road quickly is an ideal fit with Meritor’s Authorized Rebuilder Program, Toews says. “We share a common commitment to best-in-class service.”
Meritor plans to extend the Authorized Rebuilder Program to the United States in 2018, the company says.
