Eaton appoints new authorized rebuilder

Power management company Eaton has added Drivetrain Service & Components Inc. of Bensenville, Ill. to its list of Authorized Rebuilders.

“Drivetrain Service has a longstanding and well regarded reputation as a premier rebuilder in the greater Chicago area,” said Bill Fouch, Eaton’s NAFTA aftermarket manager. “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% Eaton content for all of the transmissions rebuilt as a part of the program.

“This new partnership with Eaton verifies our commitment to always providing the very best in quality products,” said Paresh Patel, president of 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. Eaton’s Authorized Rebuilder program, launched in 2013, ensures fleets and independent drivers that locally built remanufactured transmissions include 100% genuine Eaton components and meet all of Eaton’s rebuild requirements, according to the company.
