TROY, Mich., Sept. 26, 2017 - Meritor, Inc. (NYSE: MTOR) today announced a new value brand called Mach that offers global customers all-makes products designed and engineered to industry standards at affordable prices.
"With a rise in the number of competitors selling products at various price points and quality levels, Meritor's Mach brand will offer a wide range of replacement part options at affordable prices that are validated by our engineers," said Rob Speed, president, Aftermarket & Trailer. "Although the Meritor, Meritor WABCO and Euclid brands will continue to offer the highest durability and lowest total cost of ownership, end-users looking for lower price points from a proven Tier 1 supplier will be able to count on Mach-branded products."
Designed for second as well as third owners, Mach-branded products include an assortment of suspension, steering, brake and drivetrain components that will be available initially in North America before the end of 2017 and will launch in Europe, South America and Australia at a later date. As with all Meritor Aftermarket products, parts purchased under the company's Mach brand come with a standard one-year warranty and are "exceptionally supported" by the Aftermarket field sales and customer service teams, Speed said.
"Meritor offers a comprehensive portfolio of aftermarket brands for vehicles in various stages of lifecycle, including genuine original equipment and a wide range of all-makes and remanufactured components to ensure we have the customer covered regardless of vehicle stage or desired price point," he added.
