Meritor, Inc. says the company is expanding its first wholesale aftermarket parts outlet in North America.
The Edmonton-based Drivetrain Express outlet, which opened in 1999 as a Mascot remanufacturing distribution center, offers a one-stop source for remanufactured drivetrain parts and four-hour delivery or pickup from time of ordering within a 60-miles radius.
“A truck operator who needs a component replacement simply cannot wait days for parts to be shipped — it’s a ‘today’ business where every minute counts,” says Brad Begley, director, corporate accounts, Meritor Aftermarket. “The company’s in-depth market knowledge — from new parts, to all-makes, to remanufactured units — enables us to expand our support and service to customers who need the right parts now..”
The Drivetrain Express outlet stocks an extensive inventory of Meritor’s branded aftermarket components, including an all-makes suite of made-to-order Mascot drive shafts and driveline components such as U-joints, center bearings, shaft tubing and yokes; Euclid clutches; and Meritor genuine and AllFit drive axle and transmission components.
The company says its aftermarket field staff will supply Edmonton-area customers with complete information packets that include catalogs, brochures and FAQs to help streamline the parts purchasing process.
