FleetPride announced a partnership, launched June 1, with TRW remanufactured steering gears from ZF for a steering gears program.
As a result of the partnership, and to continue providing superior customer service, FleetPride will now stock steering gears in all five of its distribution centers as well as have a customized assortment readily available at its nationwide branch locations, the company says.
“This partnership with TRW puts FleetPride in the unique position to offer our customers the highest quality remanufactured steering gears quickly and consistently. Now stocking in all our 280 locations, we have the quality steering gears that our aftermarket customers need to keep their trucks out of the shop and on the road,” says Terri Roseman, FleetPride vice president of category management.
This is also a long-term plan for TRW to provide remanufactured steering gears, along with its 18-month warranty for all makes and models.
“TRW is pleased to announce a new preferred supplier agreement with FleetPride for our TRW remanufactured steering gears. We have enjoyed a long relationship with FleetPride, and with this new agreement, we will expand our product and market position in FleetPride’s vast network. We are proud to be affiliated with the industry leader and look forward to our new program launch in the coming weeks. TRW Remanufactured steering gears offer exceptional quality and market coverage to FleetPride and its customers,” says Tom Otter, ZF head of sales, commercial steering aftermarket.
Additionally, the partnership will set FleetPride up for continued success and allow the company to make a bigger impact in the heavy-duty trucking industry by gaining an advantage in five areas: availability, quality, field support, technical support and competitive pricing.
