Eaton has added another North American location to its list of Authorized Rebuilders with the recent signing of Drivetrain Service & Components, Inc., in Bensenville, Ill.
Founded in 1980, the company has 30 employees and a 40,000-sq.-ft. office, warehouse and shop facility in the Chicago suburb near O’Hare International Airport.
Eaton’s Authorized Rebuilder program, launched in 2013, ensures fleets and independent drivers that locally built remanufactured transmissions include 100 percent genuine Eaton components and meet all of Eaton’s rebuild requirements. The program has been successful in providing customers with a higher level of confidence and after-the-sale support than other rebuilders can provide, Eaton says.
“Drivetrain Service has a longstanding and well regarded reputation as a premier rebuilder in the greater Chicago area,” says Bill Fouch, NAFTA aftermarket manager, Eaton. “Now all of their current and future customers are going to see even more value with the many benefits that come with being an Eaton Authorized Rebuilder.”
To gain recognition, rebuilders are required to complete Eaton’s technical and sales training, they must meet Eaton’s re-use and rebuild criteria, and must use 100 percent Eaton content for all of the transmissions rebuilt as a part of the program, the company says.
“This new partnership with Eaton verifies our commitment to always providing the very best in quality products,” says Paresh Patel, president at Drivetrain Service & Components. “All of our mutual customers are sure to benefit from the additional value that we will now be bringing to the commercial truck industry and will go a long way in distinguishing us as the leading local provider of aftermarket transmissions.”
Additional Eaton Authorized Rebuilders include PowerTrain, Indianapolis, Indiana; TransAxle, Cinnaminson, New Jersey; and Pacific Truck in Edmonton, Alberta.
