Meritor, Inc. has opened a new ASEAN Aftermarket Distribution and Customer Service Center in Jurong Town, Singapore. According to Meritor, the distribution center opening was attended by customers, suppliers, business partners and government officials, including David Adelman, U.S. ambassador to Singapore.
With the ability to supply Indochina, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand, Meritor says the facility will provide commercial vehicle axle, brake, driveline and suspension parts under the Meritor, TruckTechnic, Euclid and Mascot brands to distributors in the region, along with thousands of end-user truck operators.
